Why Choose an ACMS Fellowship Trained
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in America and early treatment from an experienced physician is vital. Dr. Paul M. Friedman underwent extensive Fellowship training in Mohs micrographic surgery, a procedure that is widely accepted as the most effective method of treating many types of skin cancer. Fellowship training from the American College of Mohs Surgery indicates a higher level of education and skill, which Dr. Friedman obtained in order to provide patients with the best possible care.
The ACMS was established by the surgeon who originally developed the Mohs micrographic technique, Dr. Frederic Mohs, and its fellowship training program is often said to be the hallmark of surgical training for the procedure. Surgeons are selected by the ACMS after a rigorous qualification process, and must complete a strict one-to-two year training program after they have finished their dermatology residencies. Dr. Friedman is proud to have performed his fellowship studies and training in New York City under veteran Mohs College surgeon, Dr. Roy Geronemus.
Dr. Friedman has been practicing Mohs surgery in the Texas Medical Center for 15 years, including consulting as a Clinical Specialist in Mohs Surgery at the world-renowned MD Anderson Cancer Center in 2002-2003.
