Developed by Frederic E. Mohs, M.D. in the 1930s, Mohs Micrographic Surgery for the removal of skin cancer is a highly precise, highly effective method that excises not only the visible tumor but also any “roots” that may have extended beneath the skin surface. Five-year cure rates have been demonstrated up to 99 percent for first-treatment cancers and 95 percent for recurring cancers.

Mohs surgery involves the systematic removal and microscopic analysis of thin layers of tissue at the tumor site until the last traces of the cancer have been eliminated. The immediate and complete microscopic examination and evaluation of excised tissue is what differentiates Mohs surgery from other cancer removal procedures. Cancerous tissue is removed with minimal normal tissue sacrifice, minimizing both post-operative wound size and the chance of recurrence.

Mohs surgery is most commonly used for basal and squamous cell carcinomas. Cancers that have recurred are often treated using this technique because the precision of Mohs surgery is ideal for the elimination of cancers in cosmetically and functionally critical areas such as on the head, neck, hands and feet.

All of our physicians are Fellowship trained to function as surgeon, pathologist and reconstructive surgeon to provide the best possible cosmetic outcome for our patients and the highest quality of treatment for your skin cancer.
