Dermatologic Surgery

When choosing a dermatologist, it is important to consider that for many skin disorders and lesions surgery will be a treatment option. Nearly all skin surgeries for both benign and malignant lesions are performed on an outpatient basis, normally in the same office that the lesions were diagnosed or biopsied in. While the practice of diagnostic dermatology is rather scientific, dermatologic surgery is an art, with a wide variety of skills and experience required to perform surgical skin excisions, reconstructions, and cosmetic enhancements. In treating both malignant skin cancers and symptomatic benign lesions, the primary goal is full removal of the lesion of concern, however the secondary goal is minimizing the appearance of scarring through the use of appropriate surgical techniques and skilled suturing. Board Certified Dermatologist Dr. Thomas Adrian received extensive surgical training under the tutelage of MOHS Micrographic Surgeon Dr. Zaineb Makhzoumi at the University of Maryland Department of Dermatology, performing hundreds of skin excisions and closures on the face and trunk during this period. Dr. Adrian is adept at minimizing scarring while also ensuring complete removal of skin cancers and other skin lesions.
