The thinning of the ozone layer and increased use of tanning booths and sunlamps have caused a dramatic increase in skin cancer in the United States. Dr. Stice is skilled at diagnosing and treating skin cancer and other skin growths and can surgically remove them in a manner that maintains function and offers a pleasing final appearance.
Many small skin cancers can be removed in a physician’s office using simple excisions and local anesthesia. These outpatient procedures leave a thin, barely visible scar. However, if the cancer is large or if it has spread to other places in the body, major surgery may be required. If so, a plastic surgeon will play an important role on the treatment team. Reconstructive techniques often can repair damaged tissue, rebuild anatomy and restore patients to acceptable appearance and function.
