A skin biopsy is a procedure in which a sample of skin tissue is removed, processed, and examined under a microscope. Several different methods may be used to obtain a skin sample, depending on the size and location of the abnormal area of skin. The tissue is then processed and examined under a microscope to diagnose skin conditions such as psoriasis or eczema, skin cancer, and infections of the skin such as ringworm.​


Skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma can be treated with surgical excision. This involves numbing the area with local anesthesia and surgical removal of the lesion in office. 


Both benign and atypical moles can be removed by surgical excision in the office. Atypical moles may require surgical excision with stitches. Benign moles may be removed with surgical excision or shave removal.


Cryosurgery is the use of extreme cold produced by liquid nitrogen to freeze skin tissue and is used to treat many skin conditions including warts, pre-cancerous lesions called actinic keratoses, sun spots, benign age growths called seborrheic keratoses, skin tags, and other skin conditions.


Electrosurgery is a term used to describe the use of electricity to cause thermal destruction of tissue. Electrosurgery is used to stop bleeding and destroy abnormal skin growths. Electrosurgery can be used in the treatment of certain types of skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma as well as for the removal of benign lesions such as skin tags, age growths, and many others. 


Cysts and lipomas are benign lesions that can be treated with surgical excision or intralesional injection.


Skin tags are benign lesions that can be removed with cryosurgery, snip excision, or shave removal.


Keloids are the result of an overgrowth of dense fibrous tissue that usually develops after healing of a skin injury. Keloids can be treated with multiple therapies including intralesional steroid injections, surgical excision, and cryosurgery.
