Skin and Soft Tissue

Skin and Soft Tissue Banner

ARC general surgeons assess and treat a variety of skin and skin-related conditions. While not every skin lesion requires surgical removal, your surgeon can assess, diagnose, and explain non-surgical and surgical options tailored to each patient.

Soft tissue and skin conditions commonly seen and managed by general surgeons include lipomas, inclusion cysts, skin infections and abscesses, skin cancer (squamous cell, basal cell, and melanomas), as well chronic skin conditions such as hidradenitis suppurativa.

ARC surgeons can help you understand the diagnosis and offer a surgical treatment, which can often be accomplished as an office-based procedure.
