Established in 1992, the Skin Cancer Center of Southeast Michigan, conveniently located in Southfield, is dedicated to providing the absolute best care to its patients. We provide the best, most compassionate and cost-effective skin cancer treatment available. We use state-of-the-art technology to provide the best skin cancer treatment. Skin cancer is a serious disease, but can be cured in most cases if caught early enough. In fact, it is one of the most easily treated forms of cancer. Here at the Skin Cancer Center of Southeast Michigan, we perform skin cancer treatment using the Mohs procedure. Mohs surgery is touted as the most effective means of treating basal cell carcinomas and squamous cell carcinomas, which are the two most common types of skin cancer. Mohs micrographic surgery allows the surgeon to remove as many cancerous cells as possible while sparing healthy tissue, which offers superior cosmetic and medical results. Mohs surgery has the highest potential cure rate at 98 percent and a rapid recovery rate. We do our best to complete the treatment in one session, but several sessions may be necessary. Mark A. Stiff M.D. is the lead surgeon of the Skin Cancer Center of Southeast Michigan. He earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Akron, completed three years of intensive surgical training at Akron General Medical Center, and completed his dermatology residency at Wayne State University. He obtained his Mohs surgical fellowship training from the University of Wisconsin, working with Dr. Mohs himself, and brought his expertise back to Michigan. In addition to his surgical duties he teaches residents in training at the Wayne State University Department of Dermatology. Dr. Stiff is certified by the American College of Mohs Surgery and a fellow of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery. His other many professional memberships, certifications, and accomplishments are just one reason to trust him with your skin cancer treatment in Southfield, MI. A diagnosis of any cancer can be very trying, and as such, we do our best to put our patients at ease before, during, and after the procedure.
