Eyelid Cancer Surgery
Dr. Steinsapir provides comprehensive management for eyelid skin cancers. His expertise is widely recognized.
The most common skin cancers of the eyelid are basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. These are usually caused by long-term sun exposure.
Dr. Steinsapir typically works with a Mohs’ cancer surgeon who performs the excision of the lesion using microscopic control. Dr. Steinsapir then does the reconstruction. This team approach provides the highest rate of cure and at the same time conserves the uninvolved eyelid by limiting the removal of normal tissue.
It is Dr. Steinsapir’s goal to provide the most natural reconstruction possible.
