Dr. Abrou specializes in dermatology, with special interest in skin cancer, dermato-oncology, and Mohs micrographic skin cancer surgery. Such surgery involves precisely identifying and removing the entire tumor, layer by layer, while leaving the surrounding healthy tissue intact and unharmed. As the most exact and precise method of tumor removal, Mohs micrographic surgery lessens the chance of re-growth and the potential for disfigurement. It offers the highest success rate of all treatments of skin cancer-up to 99 percent-and is the treatment of choice for many cancers of the face and other sensitive areas.
