Plymouth, MA (PressExposure) June 17, 2013 -- As one of only two Mohs micrographic surgical centers for skin cancer in Southeastern Mass., the Skin Cancer Mohs Surgery Unit offers the highest level of skin cancer care for patients located on Cape Cod and south of Boston. The treatment center is led by Richard F. Eisen, M.D., a Board Certified Dermatologist and highly skilled Mohs micrographic surgeon.

Appointments are scheduled in a timely manner to minimize wait times for patients awaiting skin cancer treatment. The 2,780 square foot surgical center houses seven surgical suites, a histotech laboratory, nursing suite and a spacious reception area. On-site free parking is available. New patients and referrals are accepted.
The Skin Cancer Mohs Surgery Unit works closely with a patient's primary care physician or dermatologist to ensure the highest level of communication and care in the treatment and management of all types of skin cancer.
About Mohs Micrographic Surgery
Mohs micrographic surgery is special skin cancer surgery performed at the Skin Cancer Mohs Surgery Unit that is very precise and removes the least amount of tissue to remove the cancer with the highest cure rates. Â This type of surgery is used to treat basal and squamous cell carcinomas as well as melanoma. It is ideal for skin cancer on the face, instances of recurring cancer and large or ill-defined areas of cancer.
"The number of cases of skin cancer is rising rapidly in the greater Boston area, particularly on the South Shore," explained Dr. Eisen.
He continued, "The Skin Cancer Surgery Unit is well-situated at the half-way point between Boston and Cape Cod and conveniently located at exit 7 off Route 3. Our accessibility and our 'no wait list' for skin cancer surgery are a couple of reasons why we've been so successful."
