Skin cancer is the most common form of all cancers. More than 3.5 million new cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed in the United States this year alone. Fortunately, most cases can be cured with early detection and treatment. In addition to her board certification in dermatology, Dr. Bogart has been specially trained to perform Mohs surgery for skin cancers. She completed an intense one year fellowship that is approved by the American College of Mohs Surgeons. She specializes in treating all forms of skin cancer including, basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and malignant melanoma. Dr. Bogart is also an expert in the repair of skin lesions, including cosmetic reconstruction following skin cancer removal, skin grafts and skin flaps.
 
Mohs Micrographic Surgery is the most advanced and effective treatment for skin cancer available today. With the Mohs technique, Dr. Bogart is able to see beyond the visible disease, to precisely identify and remove the entire tumor, layer by layer, while leaving the surrounding healthy tissue intact and unharmed. As the most exact and precise method of tumor removal, it minimizes the chance of recurrence and lessens the potential for scarring or disfigurement.
 
Because Mohs surgeons are specially trained in surgery, pathology, and reconstruction, Mohs surgery has the highest success rate of all treatments for skin cancer.  The Mohs technique is the treatment of choice for cancers of the face and other sensitive areas as it relies on the accuracy of a microscopic surgical procedure to trace the edges of the cancer and ensure complete removal of all tumors during the initial surgery.
 
Mohs surgery offers the highest chance for complete removal of the cancer while sparing the normal tissue. Cure rates exceed 99 percent for new cancers and 95 percent for recurrent cancers. For more information go to Mohs.

Why Choose a Fellowship Trained Mohs Surgeon?

Mohs micrographic surgery has set a new standard in skin cancer treatment. An increasing number of physicians are performing Mohs surgery, which is now widely accepted as the most effective treatment for most types of skin cancer. However, not all Mohs surgeons receive the same level of training as Dr. Megan Bogart, a fellowship trained Mohs surgeon.
 
When it comes to your skin cancer treatment, you deserve no less than the best. Dr. Bogart has achieved the highest degree of Mohs surgery qualification by completing an American College of Mohs Surgery approved fellowship. For you, this means peace of mind, knowing that you will receive superior quality and competency, as well as an optimal outcome.

Dr. Bogart and ACMS - Committed to Superior Care

The ACMS "http://www.SkinCancerMohsSurgery.org" was established by Dr. Frederic Mohs himself, and its fellowship training program is generally acknowledged as the benchmark in Mohs surgery training. Through an extensive application and interview process, only the most qualified physicians are selected by ACMS to participate in a fellowship program. Participants must undergo a rigorous 1 to 2 year training program subsequent to completing a residency in dermatology.
 
During fellowship training, Dr. Bogart studied and trained under the guidance of veteran Mohs College surgeons who have demonstrated expertise in Mohs surgery. A cornerstone of the ACMS fellowship training program is cultivating experience and judgment in each graduate. Since skin cancer occurs in a diversity of forms, degrees and locations, the program is set up to be thorough and stringent. 
 
Dr. Bogart met the following requirements in completing her ACMS fellowship:
  • Participated in a minimum of 500 Mohs surgery cases 
  • Learned to accurately interpret slides of tissue samples removed during Mohs surgery 
  • Performed a vast array of reconstructions, ranging from the simplest to the most complex, multi-step repairs 
As an ACMS graduate, Dr. Bogart gained an uncommon level of exposure, including everything from challenging tumor locations to rare tumor pathology and complex wound reconstruction. You can rest assured that she has the training and experience to achieve the best outcome from your skin cancer treatment.
