Mole and Skin Checks

Skin Cancer is the most common cancer in New Zealand, accounting for nearly 80% of all new cancers. The earlier a skin cancer is diagnosed, the better the chance of it being able to treated successfully. To help make an early diagnosis, having your skin checked in person by a dermatologist is the most accurate method, and we are able to provide mole mapping if required. Learn More

Mohs Micrographic Surgery

Mohs Micrographic Surgery (Mohs Surgery) is the most advanced and precise method for treating skin cancers, achieving cure rates that are higher than any other technique. The key aspects of the Mohs surgery technique is that the skin cancer specimen is processed in an on-site laboratory, and that the specialist Mohs surgeon both removes the skin cancer and examines the microscopic slides in a detailed and meticulous manner.
