About MOHS Surgery

Mohs Micrographic Surgery is the most advanced and effective treatment procedure for skin cancer available today. This precise surgery offers the highest cure rate by tracing cancer to its root, removing the tumor and sparing the healthy surrounding tissue, leaving the smallest possible scar. The procedure is done in stages, including lab work, while the patient waits. Used for specific areas, this conservative surgical procedure is an effective and precise method for treating the two most common types of skin cancer, basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) and squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs).
