Skin Cancer Treatment & Procedures
Skin procedures come in a variety of levels from simple removal to more complex reconstructions. As a skin procedures specialist in Nashville, Dr. Robert Garza has worked with dermatologists in Nashville for years. We treat patients with everything from a primary excision to larger,more complex skin cancer removals & reconstruction.
A primary excision skin procedure is performed when a patient comes in with skin cancer that need to be removed. We’re able to take the skin cancer off completely & make it look as aesthetically pleasing as possible.
Mohs surgery is performed by a dermatologist who then refers here for wound closure to make it look not only aesthetically pleasing but to also fill a wound that may otherwise take a long time to heal.
COMPLEX SKIN PROCEDURES
One of the things that we see commonly is having complicated cases with large skin cancers or different parts of the body like the scalp or the ears. These are all areas that can be really complicated to reconstruct. We certainly have done plenty of these procedures & specialize in complex skin cancer reconstruction. These skin procedures might involve something as simple as closing up the skin cancer wound or using a skin graft. It also might involve a tissue transfer from a leg or arm to a head or other complicated skin issues that we focus on.
We’re happy to see skin cancer patients in this office either as a first hand patient or a referral from your primary care doctor or dermatologist.
