A diagnosis of skin cancer is something no one ever wants to receive, and yet, millions of Americans are diagnosed every year. In the aftermath of a serious diagnosis, you may feel overwhelmed, as you and your loved ones seek to understand what options are available for treatment. However, the good news is that PDEMA surgery is a highly successful option for removing the two most common types of skin cancer, while preserving all normal tissues. Considering this treatment? Here is what you need to know:

Where is PDEMA Successful?

The beauty and popularity of PDEMA surgery is that it can be performed anywhere on the body. Some of the most common regions for PDEMA surgery are:

  • Behind the ear
  • On the nose
  • Above the eyebrow
  • Upper lip/Lower lip
  • Scalp
  • Cheek

If you have questions regarding the specific site of your cancerous tissue and whether or not PDEMA will work for you, the best option is to schedule a consultation. This will allow us to more fully understand your unique situation, so that we can create a treatment plan that is best suited to your needs.
