Your Lakeland Mohs Surgery Experts

At the Bowman Institute in Tampa Bay, Dr. Paul Bowman, M.D., and Avni Koschmeder, P.A., strive to deliver superior skin cancer care and treatment. 

We specialize in Mohs micrographic surgery, the proven gold standard in skin cancer treatment. This surgery is performed by removing cancer in stages, one layer at a time. The goal is to remove skin cancer “roots” while preserving the surrounding healthy tissue. 

Mohs surgery offers up to a 99 percent cure rate, the highest of all skin cancer treatments, as long as it is performed by a surgeon with meticulous attention to detail. This is why Dr. Bowman focuses exclusively on Mohs surgery and related skin cancer treatments:

  • Meticulous screening and skin examinations
  • Non-surgical treatments for pre-cancers and sun damage
  • Biopsies of suspicious lesions
  • Excision of benign and malignant lesions
  • Surgical reconstruction
