What is Mohs Micrographic Surgery?

Mohs Surgery, otherwise known as Mohs Micrographic Surgery, is the most advanced, precise, and effective technique for treating the two most common forms of skin cancer: basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) and squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs). In this state-of-the-art procedure, the dermatologist is trained to serve as the surgeon, the pathologist, and the reconstructive surgeon simultaneously. Moreover, using this technique to treat skin cancer has a unique benefit that is not possible with other treatment types – during surgery, the dermatologist has the ability to see precisely where the cancer ends. Mohs Surgery therefore offers the highest potential for recovery, even if the skin cancer has been previously treated, and an entire tumor can be identified and safely removed while preserving the surrounding, healthy tissue in an outpatient office setting.
