Mohs Micrographic Surgery

What is Mohs Micrographic Surgery?

  • Mohs micrographic surgery is a specialized, precise technique for treating skin cancers so that patients can get the highest cure rate, while minimizing the size of the surgical defect and resulting scar.
  • Mohs surgery involves removing precise layers of the skin and evaluating the 100% of the surgical margin with a microscope while the patient waits.Repeated layers are taken if necessary until the cancer is fully removed.
  • Usually, reconstruction is performed immediately following cancer removal.

Benefits of Mohs Surgery:

  • Success – Mohs Surgery provides the highest cure rate of any treatments for skin cancer—up to 99% and substantially decreases the chance of skin cancer recurrence.
  • Preservation – Mohs Surgery minimizes the removal of normal skin tissue allowing for potentially smaller scars.
  • Safety – Mohs Surgery is performed under local anesthesia. This permits faster patient recovery and a lower risk of complications, especially for older patients.
  • Integration – The Mohs surgeon is specially trained as a cancer surgeon, pathologist and reconstructive surgeon.
