What is Mohs Surgery?

Also known as micrographic surgery, Mohs surgery was developed in the 1930s by Dr. Frederic Mohs as a specialized technique to completely remove skin cancer with the highest cure rates.

Am I a Candidate for Mohs Surgery?

During your consultation, your provider will determine if Mohs surgery is the best option for you.

How is Mohs Surgery Performed?

Using microscopic examination of the cancerous skin tissue, the surgeon is able to preserve as much healthy skin as possible. Under local anesthesia, the areas affected by the skin cancer are removed until the margins of the skin are free of cancerous cells. This results in a better cosmetic result, especially in sensitive areas such as the face.

What is Recovery Like After Mohs surgery?

Your doctor and nurse will go over how to care for your skin in detail after your Mohs procedure.

What Should I Do After Mohs Surgery?

While Mohs surgery has the highest cure rate, we recommend that patients return to the office often for their skin examinations, as well as follow-up appointments after surgery.
