Dermatologic Surgery encompasses a wide variety of methods to remove or modify skin tissue for health or cosmetic benefit. These methods provide high-quality, cost-effective skin surgery and include scalpel surgery, laser surgery, chemical surgery, cryosurgery (liquid nitrogen), electrosurgery (electrocautery), and Mohs micrographic controlled surgery (a special technique for the removal of growths, especially skin cancers).

The skin is susceptible to many diseases, discolorations, and growths. It may also be damaged by excessive exposure to the sun and the effects of aging. In most cases, skin problems requiring dermatologic surgery can be addressed in the dermatologist's office or in an outpatient setting, usually using local anesthesia, with minimal pain, and low risk of complications.
