Our dermatologists have extensive surgical training in the removal of lesions on the skin. Depending on the type of skin lesion, a biopsy may be indicated to obtain a definitive diagnosis.
A skin biopsy is a simple procedure that is performed during your office visit and involves taking a small sample of skin tissue, which will be sent to a dermatopathologist for microscopic evaluation. If a diagnosis of skin cancer is made or confirmed by a biopsy, surgical removal will most likely be indicated.
Dermatologic surgery is performed in the office under local anesthetic on an outpatient basis. Surgical techniques performed in a dermatology office include excisional surgery, electrosurgery or cryosurgery. At Dermatology Physicians of Dallas we remove a variety of benign and malignant lesions.
If you have questions regarding the health of your skin, please contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
