  • Do you perform surgery?
    Yes, dermatologists perform a wide range of office based surgical procedures under local anesthesia. These include:

    • Skin and nail biopsies
    • Excisions of skin cancer
    • Curettage and desiccation of skin cancer
    • Excisions of cysts and lipomas
  • Do you perform Mohs Micrographic Surgery?
    No. Mohs MS is a unique surgical technique used for certain types of skin cancer when they recur after a prior treatment, develop in areas of very thin skin, or are already very large at the time of presentation. Dr. Meduri works with several excellent, fellowship trained Mohs surgeons in and around Atlanta. If you develop a skin cancer that requires this surgical procedure we would coordinate a referral to a Mohs surgeon.
