Dermatologic surgery, with expertise you can trust, from Dr. James Petrin.

As a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. James Petrin’s training includes surgery for a wide range of skin conditions. He has years of experience with these and other dermatologic surgeries:

  • mole evaluation & removal

  • skin growth & cyst removal
  • scar revision
  • wart removal & other minor procedures


Expertise with Mohs surgery – the most advanced skin cancer treatment available.


One of the most important aspects of Dr. Petrin’s practice is treatment for a serious health concern: skin cancer. This is the most common form of cancer in the United States and is highly treatable when caught early.
If you have a suspicious mole or have been diagnosed with skin cancer, you can feel confident in Dr. Petrin’s expertise. In addition to his excellent education and board-certification, he is a Fellow in the American Society for Mohs Surgery. Mohs surgery is the most advanced skin cancer treatment available. The advantages of this highly technical, microscopic procedure are significant:

  • Mohs surgery allows for immediate pathological evaluation of the skin, to ensure the most complete removal of cancer cells. This improves cure rates and reduces recurrence.
  • 
Mohs surgery preserves the maximum amount of normal skin, resulting in smaller scars and improved cosmetic results.

  • Mohs surgery is typically performed in an outpatient setting, using local anesthesia. It is not only more effective, but more convenient, comfortable and cost effective for patients than other approaches to skin cancer removal.
