Mohs surgery is an outpatient procedure with a high cure rate for many types of skin cancer. Also known as Mohs micrographic surgery, the treatment involves the use of a microscope to examine the layers of tissue beneath a cancerous lesion. This advanced technique allows the surgeon to remove only as much tissue as is needed to get rid of the cancerous cells, thus limiting damage to the skin. To get optimal results from this highly specialized procedure, it is important to choose the best Mohs surgeons in the NJ area, Dr. Kathleen Rossy and Dr. Marc Handler of Kessel Dermatology.

Who Might Benefit from Mohs Surgery?
Mohs surgery has a high success rate in the treatment of many different skin cancers, including: squamous and basal cell carcinoma, some types of melanoma and some other less common types of skin cancer. It is often recommended for patients with skin cancers that:
- Are located in sensitive spots where tissue preservation is a priority, such as in the eye area or on the ears, mouth, hands, nose, genitals or feet
- Have a high risk for recurrence or have already recurred following treatment
- Are aggressive, large or fast growing
- Have borders which are difficult to define
In some cases, another procedure may be more appropriate for curing skin cancer. If you have been diagnosed with skin cancer, we can help you decide whether this surgery is the right choice for your treatment.
