Dr. Oliver Wisco, DO, is available for dermatology appointments one to two days a month at Harney District Hospital.
As a dermatologist, Dr. Wisco provides comprehensive skin care for patients of all ages. He has advanced training in Mohs Surgery (a procedure used to remove skin cancer in a specialized way that minimizes the amount of tissue removed and decreases scarring) and in caring for patients with melanoma. While he is a skin cancer specialist, he also takes care of patients with the full spectrum of dermatologic conditions.
Mohs surgery, also known as Mohs micrographic surgery, is a precise surgical technique used to treat skin cancer. Usually performed as an outpatient procedure using a local anesthetic, it involves thin layers of cancerous skin tissue being progressively removed and examined until only cancer-free tissue remains. The goal of the surgery is to remove as much of the cancer as possible, while minimizing damage to the healthy skin tissue surrounding it.
