Mohs Surgery

Mohs Surgery

 

Mohs surgery is a specialized surgical treatment that is designed to remove skin cancer while saving as much healthy tissue as possible.

Mohs surgery ensures that the entire tumor is removed by immediate microscopic examination of 100 percent of the surgical margin. If tumor is noted after initial excision, another layer of tissue is taken. This continues until a cancer-free plane is achieved.

Mohs surgery greatly diminishes the chance for cancer recurrence compared to other techniques.
