Advanced skin closure after Mohs micrographic surgery
Reconstructive surgery is often performed following Mohs surgery. After Mohs surgery is completed, the skin cancer has been removed, but an open hole has been created in the skin. This open hole needs to be closed. How the hole is closed is the field of reconstructive surgery, a discipline that requires a complex understanding of three dimensional tissue movement, geometry, and human anatomy. The decision on how to best close any particular hole is a unique decision tailored to each person’s unique circumstances. Dr. Julia Tzu received formalized fellowship training in reconstructive skin surgery at one of top centers for skin reconstruction in the nation, the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. She will formulate a reconstructive strategy to close the hole in the best way possible to restore the most natural form and function.
