Skin Cancer (including Melanoma) Removal

Skin cancers, such as basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas, are the most common forms of cancer in the United States. These cancers typically occur on sun-exposed areas of the body, such as the face, neck, back, arms and legs. Treatment often requires surgery to remove cancerous growths.

Our greatest priority is protecting your health by making sure that all cancer is removed. Dr. Larson and his skilled team are able to surgically remove cancerous lesions using techniques to preserve your appearance as much as possible. The most appropriate surgical reconstruction will be determined based on the size, location and amount of cancer cells that need to be removed. Every effort is made to restore your appearance as close to natural as possible.

Large or complex skin cancer removal may require skin cancer reconstruction.
