There are some superficial types of skin cancer that can be removed using non-surgical techniques such as creams or lasers, however most skin cancers require surgical removal.
The location, size and type of skin cancer influences the type of surgery required. Basic skin surgery (simple excision or basic flap surgery) can be performed for most skin cancers. Some lesions may require specialised surgery called MOHS surgery, or may require a plastic surgeon for removal. Dr Wines specialises in basic skin surgery and performs a monthly surgical clinic at The Skin Hospital Darlinghurst. If your skin cancer requires specialised attention she will refer you to the best type of surgeons to address your specific needs.
