THE FACE OF MOHS SURGERY
Mohs Micrographic Surgery is the most effective way to treat the most common forms of skin cancer with a 98 per cent cure rate for basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma. The Mohs method also results in the best cosmetic and functional outcome for the patient — especially important when treating the face or hands. Dr. Maral Kibarian Skelsey is one of the nation’s leading Mohs Micrographic Surgeons. A fellow of the American College of Mohs Surgery and Director of Dermatologic Surgery at Georgetown University, she founded the Dermatologic Surgery Center of Washington in 2003. The mission of her center is to bring the latest techniques and research in melanoma and other skin cancer treatment to the nation’s capital. Supporting her is a highly trained staff who are skilled at making every patient’s experience comfortable and reassuring. As a proud face of Mohs Surgery in Washington, DC, and a Washingtonian “Top Doc”, Dr. Skelsey is known not just for her expertise in this specialized procedure but also for her compassion for her patients and in healing the whole person.
