Abstract

At the University of Michigan the dermatologic surgeon works closely with the head and neck surgeon in resecting extensive cutaneous malignancies that could benefit from the combined skills of both surgical specialists. Mohs surgery offers complete microscopic controlled resection of the cutaneous portion of skin cancers. Tumors extending deeply from the skin into underlying bone and soft tissue are resected with the assistance of the head and neck surgeon familiar with the anatomy and trained in the protection of the vital structures of the head and neck. It is evident that patients with large or aggressive basal cell carcinomas will best be served when this interdisciplinary approach has become commonplace.
