Surgical Dermatology

Craig Singer MD Dermatology offers comprehensive care for your skin, including a variety of dermatologic surgical procedures. Dr. Singer performs  surgery on the skin in a safe and relaxed environment with the use of local anesthetic.
We understand that many patients have anxiety when it comes to surgery. That’s why we take the time to explain the details of the procedure and answer any questions. We confirm that the surgical site is completely anesthetized prior to the start of the procedure. Furthermore, we ensure that the patient is comfortable during surgery. Sedation (general or conscious) is considered unnecessary in the vast majority of skin surgical procedures. If you have concerns, we are happy to discuss these with you at any time.

 

 

We perform the following dermatologic surgeries and procedures:

 

  • Skin cancer excision (including excision of basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and non-invasive melanoma)
  • Mole excision, Benign or Dysplastic
  • Cyst drainage

  • Sebaceous Cyst complete removal
  • Scalp pilar cyst removal
  • Removal of small to medium sized fatty tumors (lipomas)
