Benefits of Choosing Dr. Marcus for Your Mohs Reconstruction
"In the modern world of plastic surgery, it is important to not solely focus on the cosmetic aspects but to ensure the safety, health and function of the patient are not compromised," says Dr. Marcus. Not only is Dr. Marcus and double-board certified Head and Neck surgeon, but he is also an Ear Nose Throat specialist. With these spheres of knowledge, he helps his patients move forward from basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma without any defects that serve as an unkind reminder.
Dr. Marcus trained under one of the nation's most prestigious Moh's reconstruction surgeons, Dr. Shan Baker. For many years, Dr. Marcus also taught Moh's reconstructions to residents at the USC Keck School of Medicine. With his sharp eye for aesthetics and skilled surgical touch, Dr. Marcus will restore your face to its appearance prior to Mohs surgery, repairing and rebuilding your facial contours to attain maximum facial harmony and perfect function.
