Mohs surgery is used in skin cancer treatment and involves removing a cancerous tumor along with the adjacent tissues. The recovery period after Mohs surgery may take several weeks and depends on the size of the operated tumor. Together, Dr. Papadopoulos and Dr. Kim have performed more than 20,000 cases of Mohs micrographic surgery. Both are fellows of the American College of Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Cutaneous Oncology, the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, and the American Academy of Dermatology.
The Mohs College Difference
While any board-certified dermatologist may perform Mohs surgery, only members of the American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS) have undergone rigorous fellowship training. Chosen through an extremely competitive review and selection process, fellows are required to complete an intensive 1 or 2-year post-residency ACMS fellowship training program.
