For 15 years, Dr. A. Edward Abrou of Beacon Skin & Surgeries has provided his patients with the highest quality dermatological care and meticulous surgical skills. Board-certified with the American Board of Dermatology, Dr. Abrou is a fellowship-trained Mohs micrographic surgeon who worked at Tufts-New England Medical Center in Boston after earning his medical degree at Wayne State and completing his internship and residency at Henry Ford Hospital.
A highly specialized skill, Mohs surgery is a technique where a skin cancer is removed in the most judicious way possible. Only small specimens are taken and then checked under a microscope for any remaining cancer. The process is repeated, layer by layer, until the cancer is cleared. Once clear margins are evident, the patient undergoes reconstructive surgery to achieve the best cosmetic outcome possible using primary closures, flaps, or grafts.
Dr. Abrou also utilizes a combination of lasers to achieve outcomes that weren’t possible a few years ago. These lasers and microneedling devices help obliterate stubborn acne scars, and are used for scar revision and resurfacing.
“The field of dermatology has been making strides on many fronts in the surgical field,” Dr. Abrou says, noting that lasers are essential instruments in facial rejuvenation and anti-aging procedures.
Utilizing the highest standards and the latest scientifically proven methods to treat his patients, Dr. Abrou is a compassionate physician who employs artistic skills to remove cancer in highly visible areas, ensuring the least noticeable scar possible. His ability to remove acne scars aids in improving the self-esteem of his younger patients.
Dr. Abrou is a fellow of the American College of Mohs Surgery and a fellow of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery. He holds privileges at many hospitals in the greater Detroit area, is currently division head of dermatology at Troy Beaumont, and gives lectures to many medical professionals and the community regarding skin cancer prevention and treatment.
A family man who enjoys reading motivational books, listening to classical music, and oil painting, Dr. Abrou is extremely proud of the four daughters he and his wife, Sara, are raising: Marcella, Clara, Helena, and Miriam.
