Surgical dermatology includes removing dangerous or unsightly lesions, repairing skin where it has been breached, or remodeling previous surgical sites that have not healed most pleasingly. Our patients often visit individually or bring in their families to Bryn Mawr Dermatology for comprehensive skin care that meets the needs of all ages; we are skilled at providing surgical treatment and minimizing the visible signs that surgery was ever performed. Patients of every age group can feel confident about their procedure.

If you have a mole that is causing concern, you have been diagnosed with skin cancer, or benign lesions (like skin tags) are a cosmetic distraction, we welcome you to reach out to our team. With a thorough consultation, we can diagnose skin problems and recommend a treatment plan to protect your health and wellbeing.

The procedure is recommended to consistently remove all of the dangerous cells while sparing healthy tissue and leave the smallest possible scar. Mohs surgery is the most effective treatment to remove BCCs and SCCs in cosmetically and functionally important areas like the on the face, fingers, toes and genitals. Skin cancers that are recurrent, rapidly growing, particularly large or have indistinct edges are also good candidates for Mohs micrographic surgery.

You noticed a growth on your skin that didn’t seem quite right so you made an appointment at Bryn Mawr Dermatology to have it checked out. The dermatology experts agreed that further investigation was recommended due to its physical appearance, any symptoms you might be experiencing, and the lesion’s history. During your visit your provider took a small sample of the lesion in the form of a biopsy that was sequentially sent to a dermatopathologist to review under a microscope, and they identified the cells as a skin cancer or other skin lesion that requires attention. What comes next?

Dermatological surgery can be intimidating for many, but we are committed to making the experience comfortable and educating patients on what they can expect. We understand that remnants of surgery on highly visible areas can affect a person’s confidence. Our highly skilled medical staff is always taking this into account, whether we are repairing a facial laceration for a young patient or performing a mole or skin tag removal on an adult.

Christine Stanko, MD, FAAD


My work has always required an attention to detail. I ensure every person has a good experience at our practice. I often ask myself: ‘If this were my family member, how would I treat him/her?’ I treat patients like my own family. For me that is the ultimate test if a physician is serving patients well.
