Understanding Mohs

Mohs surgery is an advanced skin cancer treatment. It has the highest potential for cure, even if skin cancer has been treated previously. During this state-of-the-art treatment, the surgeon removes skin cancer layer by layer, examining each layer under a microscope in real time. This allows the surgeon to leave as much healthy tissue behind as possible while being certain that all the skin cancer has been removed.

Advantages of Mohs Surgery

Mohs is a highly effective surgery with studies showing up to a 99% cure rate for people with normal skin cancers. Since the procedure allows the surgeon to leave behind the most healthy tissue, it minimizes scarring. Additionally, this method helps surgeons remove the “roots” of the cancer. This lowers the chances of recurrence.
