What is MOHS Micrographic Surgery?
A precise and targeted approach to the removal of a skin cancer growth, MOHS surgery offers our patients the highest cure rate for skin cancer.
Involving the surgical removal of a microscopic layer of skin cancer, the MOHS surgeon methodically analyzes each layer of tissue during the procedure. The tissue is continually removed and examined until fully healthy, cancer-free tissue is revealed. This not only ensures the full removal of the targeted cancer, but ensures the surrounding healthy tissue is left intact, leading to shortened recovery times.
