Mohs Surgery in Houston
Dr. Suneel Chilukuri has created an exceptional dermatology surgery practice where art meets cutting-edge science in a calm, comfortable environment of uncompromising care and attention.
Dr. Chilukuri’s skills as a surgeon, Columbia University and Baylor College of Medicine professor, researcher, lecturer and leader in the dermatologic surgery societies have earned him numerous honors in the medical community. What truly differentiates Dr. Chilukuri’s practice is his comprehensive, hands-on approach. Dr. Chilukuri treats the whole patient, not simply a symptom or issue. As the sole Mohs micrographic surgeon, he performs every procedure himself, ensuring outstanding outcomes that promote both the health and aesthetic appearance of his patients’ skin. Mohs micrographic surgery is an advanced treatment process that provides the most effective technique for removing skin cancers while minimizing the sacrifice of normal tissue. This technique provides a 99% cure rate for most cutaneous tumors while allowing an optimal cosmetic outcome. Mohs Micrographic Surgery remains the most effective method of removing non-melanotic skin cancer (basal cell cancer, squamous cell cancer, sebaceous carcinoma, Extramammary Paget’s disease, Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, etc.) available anywhere in the world today. Mohs micrographic surgery utilizes an advanced technique to take out only the affected skin and tumor and leave as much of the normal skin intact to provide the best cosmetic results. The surgeon removes affected skin tissue layer by layer while analyzing the depth of the cancerous skin cells. This ensures that the cancerous skin is entirely removed, while limiting the removal of healthy, uninvolved tissue and skin cells. Our doctors utilize the latest equipment and technology, and offer a number of in-house services and treatments, such as conventional skin cancer care, photodynamic therapy, and advanced surgical care, in addition to Mohs micrographic surgery. Having everything under one roof gives our patients superior care with internal collaboration between the treating doctor, pathologist, and surgeon. This provides seamless and efficient care for our patients.
