Should you encounter skin cancer, your main priority is a successful diagnosis of type, and successful removal. To facilitate the most precise diagnosis, we send our slides out to third-party pathologists who are well-known national authorities on skin cancer. This step is taken because there are only a handful of dermatologists who are full fellowship-trained in the cutting edge procedure of Mohs surgery, which Dr. Cohen performs locally. Although Mohs training is available in more condensed courses, it is through a full fellowship that a physician is guided through at least 500 cases in no less than a year’s time.
Dr. Cohen has received the extensive training, including a full fellowship in the American College of Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Cutaneous Oncology training site at Vancouver General Hospital. Additionally, he has shared his specialized experience with peers through a number of publications on reconstruction of skin cancer defects.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
