Gaul Dermatology






Dr. Gaul is board certified in dermatology and dermatologic surgery. He is also a Fellow of the American Society for Mohs Surgery. Mohs micrographic surgery is a special type of surgery for skin cancer that allows the doctor to map exactly where the cancer cells are. This mapping makes it possible to completely remove the malignant cells and save the healthy surrounding tissue.

This surgery is required for certain skin cancers because of their location, because of the type of skin cancer, because the cancer was not completely removed and has returned, or because it is located over important facial nerves.

Where Did Dr. Gaul Train?
After college and medical school at the University of Iowa, Dr. Gaul completed his four years of residency training at the Marshield Clinic in Marshfield, Wisconsin and the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wisconsin.   Dermatology residents are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the skin, skin cancer, hair and nails.  Some residency programs have a special emphasis on skin cancer and surgery, like the program Dr. Gaul completed in Madison.

At the University of Wisconsin in Madison, a very special skin cancer surgeon, Dr. Frederic Mohs and his colleagues, taught him what is today referred to as "Mohs Micrographic Surgery" to remove skin cancer. This type of surgery is the treatment of choice for many facial skin cancers. You might remember that President Reagan had Mohs surgery to treat a skin cancer on his nose while he was president.
