What is Mohs Surgery?
Mohs surgery is the most effective way to treat a variety of skin cancer with a success rate of 99%. It precisely removes the cancer while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. It is so effective because the surgeon performing it microscopically examines the tissue they remove to ensure that they are cutting out all of the cancer without removing healthy skin tissue.

How do we preform Mohs Surgery?
Mohs surgery is preformed in office while under anesthesia. Your surgeon will cut out a thin layer of the visible cancer along with a very small margin of healthy tissue. He then microscopically examines the remove tissue noting where the cancer is. Then he cuts out another thin layer of skin where there is still cancer and reexamines the tissue. This process is repeated until all of the cancer is completely removed.
