Mohs Reconstruction in Boca Raton, FL
Farber Plastic Surgery, led by Scott T. Farber, MD, FACS a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon and a Diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery, is dedicated to providing each patient with high-quality, personalized care. Dr. Farber offers Mohs reconstruction to local residents requiring plastic surgery.

What Is Mohs Reconstruction?

If you don't have a Mohs surgeon, Farber Plastic Surgery can provide you with a list of preferred surgeons.
