Treating most skin cancers no longer requires invasive surgery or radiation therapy. For many patients, removing skin cancer and repairing the damaged tissue can be performed as an outpatient. As a board-certified Mohs surgeon in Lynchburg, Dr. Alisa Ann Funke delivers the most advanced and effective treatment for skin cancer, one with an up to 99% success rate and minimal downtime.
Dr. Funke ensures patients are as comfortable as possible while undergoing what can be a stressful procedure, offering compassionate care and addressing their questions. During a Mohs surgery, Dr. Funke removes the cancerous tissue, analyzes it, and repeats the process until the last sample is cancer-free. The surgical technique allows Dr. Funke to spare healthy skin and tissue, and in the majority of cases, she can reconstruct the defect the same day.
Dr. Funke graduated summa cum laude from the University of Louisville, School of Medicine and completed her internship and dermatology residency at U of L Health. After completing her ACMS fellowship in Mohs Micrographic Surgery & Dermatologic Oncology at the University of Colorado, she joined a private dermatology practice in Idaho before moving to Lynchburg in 2016. Dr. Funke is a fellow of the American College of Mohs Surgery and a member of the American Academy of Dermatology.
When not seeing patients, Dr. Funke can be found cheering for her children at sporting events (Go Glass!), camping, hiking, or ripping up the mountains on her snowboard. She also enjoys playing volleyball with her family, including her two children and scrapbooking all said activities.
