Mohs micrographic Surgery is the most advanced and effective procedure for the treatment of skin cancer available today.
Mohs surgery is a highly specialized treatment for the total removal of skin cancer. It is most commonly performed on basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.
This method differs from all other methods of treating skin cancer by the use of detailed mapping techniques and complete microscopic examination of all the tissues removed. By using these detailed mapping techniques and complete microscopic control, the Mohs surgeon can pinpoint areas involved with cancer that is otherwise invisible to the naked eye. Therefore, even the smallest microscopic roots of cancer can be removed. The result is: (1) the removal of as little normal skin as possible, and (2) the highest possibility for curing cancer.
