Surgical Dermatology 

Sometimes the best treatment for a certain dermatological concern is surgery. Mohs Micrographic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Dr. Sameer Gupta performs surgical dermatology services in Natick for patients from Wellesley, Framingham, Needham, Wayland, and Weston, MA, and other surrounding cities.

Most of these procedures are considered minor surgery and only require local anesthesia. In most cases, surgical treatments provide long-lasting cure for basal and squamous cell skin cancers.
