Mohs micrographic surgery is the most advanced treatment for skin cancer available today. With up to a 99% success rate, it’s also the most effective, even if the cancer has been treated previously using another method.
More than two million cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed this year, and one in five people will develop skin cancer in the course of their lifetime. Often, skin cancer occurs in cosmetically sensitive areas, such as the face and the hands.
The Mohs surgical technique removes the cancer in stages, one skin layer at a time. One of the many advantages of Mohs surgery is that the surrounding tissue is left undamaged, so scarring is minimal.
Mohs surgeons are specially trained in oncology, pathology and reconstruction.
