Dr. Ayli joined Cary Skin Center in 2017 and enjoys serving Cary and the Pinehurst Communities.
Dr. Elias Ayli 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 techniques for treating skin cancer, sparing the greatest amount of healthy tissue while completely removing cancerous cells. Dr. Ayli 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. Ayli '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."
