For over 10 years, Dr. T.J. Giuffrida of the Miami Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center has provided his patients with the highest-quality dermatological care and meticulous surgical skills. A renowned expert in the field, he has extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer and is one of the few fellowship Mohs surgeons in South Florida. Mohs surgery is a precise technique that requires the highest level of competency as the skin cancer is removed in the most judicious way possible. Only small specimens are taken and then checked under a microscope for any remaining cancer. The process is repeated, layer by layer, until the cancer is cleared. Once clear margins are evident, the patient undergoes reconstructive surgery to achieve the best cosmetic outcome possible using primary closures, flaps or grafts. It’s the best treatment for the most common types of skin cancer because the physician serves as surgeon, pathologist and reconstructive surgeon simultaneously. This allows Dr. Giuffrida the ability to remove cancer in highly visible areas with the least noticeable scar possible;
