Francis R Palmer III, M.D., voted one of the “World’s Best” plastic and cosmetic surgeons, is a world-renowned and internationally recognized plastic and cosmetic surgeon who can help you achieve removal of a skin cancer with the least amount of disruption, to the surrounding tissue, as possible.


Mohs micrographic surgery is a “tissue-sparing” technique for the removal of skin cancer.  Mohs uses a three-dimensional stereotactic surgical technique for the precise and accurate removal of skin cancers while preserving as much of the surrounding tissue as possible.  As a world-renowned facial plastic surgeon, Dr Francis Palmer has a thorough understanding of the anatomy and is experienced in the repair of the Mohs resection which, in most instances, can be performed immediately following the Mohs resection.


Mohs surgery is widely accepted as the single most effective technique for removing Basal Cell Carcinoma and Squamous Cell Carcinoma, the two most common forms of skin cancers.  This technique ensures the most complete removal of the skin cancer while sparing the greatest amount of healthy tissue.  Mohs is believed to have cure rates of 98 percent or higher which is significantly higher than the rates for standard excision or any other accepted method of skin cancer removal.
