A Family Of Dermatologists

 

Harris Dermatology is comprised of three brothers, Brian, Keith, and Ross, and they base their lives and careers on two important principles. The first principle that they live by to deliver the best care possible to their patients with the most current procedures in dermatology. Their second principle is to live life to the fullest and enjoy what they do. Once you get to know the Harris brothers, it’s clear that these principles play a huge part in the success that they have experienced since they started their  practice more than 15 years ago. All the Harris brothers are board certified dermatologists and they all have specialized training in skin cancer. Since all three of them are dermatologists, the Harris brothers are constantly networking, communicating, and sharing techniques with each other. Not only does this allow them to strengthen their bond as a family but it also creates an environment of constant career growth for the dermatologists as they continuously share new discoveries from the world of dermatology with each other. Together, Brian, Keith, and Ross bring their talents to Lee and Collier Counties with two offices, one dermatology office located in Fort Myers and another dermatology office in Naples. Our Fort Myers dermatology offices offers state-of-the-art facilities, and is conveniently located next to Health Park on Park Royal Drive.

What is Mohs Surgery?

MOHS Surgery – The Mohs surgical technique was developed in the 1930’s by Dr. Frederic Mohs, a dermatologist at the University of Wisconsin. Click here for more information on the history of Mohs. Harris was one of the first Fort Myers Dermatologist to operate as a Mohs Surgeon.
The cure rate with Mohs surgery cited by most studies is between 97% and 99.8% for primary basal cell removal, the most common type of skin cancer
The Mohs procedure is a pathology sectioning method that allows for the complete examination of the surgical margin. It is different from the standard bread loafing technique of sectioning where random samples of the surgical margin are examined.
Mohs surgery in Fort Myers Florida.
Performed in four steps:
1. Surgical removal of tissue
2. Mapping the piece of tissue, freezing and cutting the tissue between 5 and 10 micrometers using a cryostat, and staining the culture with blue die.
3. Interpretation of microscope slides (Pathology)
4. Possible reconstruction of the surgical defect (Reconstructive Surgery)
The procedure is usually performed by one of our Ft Myers dermatologists. A small scalpel is utilized to cut around the visible tumor. A very small surgical margin is utilized, usually with 1 to 1.5 mm of “free margin” or uninvolved skin. The amount of free margin removed is much less than the usual 4 to 6 mm required for the standard excision of skin cancers.
If cancer is found, its location is marked on the map and Harris Dermatology will remove the indicated cancerous tissue from our patient. This procedure is repeated until no further cancer is found. Mohs Surgery takes Fort Myers Dermatology to a new level in cancer removal. A Harris dermatologist will need to see our patients that received Mohs Surgery periodically to make sure there no other effected area on the body.
