Mohs Surgery At A Glance
Mohs micrographic surgery is the most effective technique for treating the two most common types of skin cancer, basal cell carcinomas and squamous cell carcinomas (Source: Skin Cancer Foundation).“Mohs” refers to Dr. Frederic Mohs who developed this technique in the 1930s. This treatment has many benefits including, only a single visit, cost-effectiveness, and the highest possible cure rate (Source: American College of Mohs Surgery).
How Mohs Surgery Is Done
Mohs surgery has multiple stages starting with removing one tissue layer at a time under local anesthesia. Each layer of tissue is examined in our on-site lab, where the microscopic roots are carefully identified and mapped. After examining, we will repeat this step until no cancer remains, sparing the good tissue and ensuring minimal scarring.
