Cary, NC, November 23, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Cary Skin Center announced today the addition of Dr. Adam Ingraffea, Mohs Surgeon, to the staff starting January 2, 2018.
He studied medicine at the Ponce School of Medicine in Ponce, Puerto Rico. He graduated class valedictorian and was selected to the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society. He went on to complete a dermatology residency at the Boston University/Roger Williams Medical Center in Providence, Rhode Island, where he served as chief resident. Dr. Ingraffea then moved to Cincinnati to train in Mohs surgery under the direction of Hugh Gloster, MD, at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.
He served as an assistant professor of dermatology at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine for five years. He was the associate program director for both the dermatology residency and Mohs surgery fellowships. He also served as the director of the resident continuity clinic and Mohs surgery clinic at the Cincinnati VA hospital. While at the University of Cincinnati, Dr. Ingraffea won many awards including Teacher of the Year in 2012. He was selected as a Best Physician in Cincinnati Magazine for three years in a row from 2013-2016. He is the author of 18 peer reviewed papers as well as multiple book chapters.
His clinical interests are in cutaneous oncology (skin cancer), Mohs surgery and facial reconstruction. He has performed over 4000 cases of Mohs surgery. Dr. Ingraffea completed his accredited Mohs surgery under the direction of Hugh Closter, M.D. at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. Dr. Ingraffea now brings that expertise to Cary, N.C. where he resides with his wife and two children.
Dr. Adam Ingraffea specializes in Mohs micrographic surgery, a type of skin cancer treatment developed by Dr. Frederick Mohs in the 1930s. It's a technique that incorporates pathology and surgery to incrementally remove cancerous skin tissue in microscopic layers. These layers are examined until the margin of the tumor is definitively mapped and removed. The process is the most effective technique for treating skin cancer, sparing the greatest amount of healthy tissue while completely removing cancerous cells. Dr. Ingraffea has performed thousands of Mohs surgery procedures and now brings that expertise to work for the benefit of Cary Skin Center's patients.
"We're thrilled to be adding a skin cancer surgeon of Dr. Ingraffea's caliber to our staff," said Robert Clark, MD, PhD., President of Cary Skin Center. "We're always looking to bring in exceptionally skilled and talented people with excellent credentials who can help our practice, but it's a bonus when they are an experienced and talented Mohs surgeon already. We're glad to have a doctor with his expertise for our Cary and Pinehurst offices and glad to have him in North Carolina."
