Mohs micrographic surgery

Doctor checking patient for skin cancer

The Mohs surgery technique involves removal of a cancer site and then immediate microscopic evaluation of the surrounding tissue. Any cancer detected is removed, and clear margins are confirmed with the use of microscope. The Mohs technique provides the highest possible cure rates and smallest possible surgical defects. This results in the best cosmetic results (i.e., smallest scarring).

Our surgical dermatology staff includes several fellowship-trained Mohs surgeons, and they deliver the highest standard of care for skin cancer detection, treatment, management and prevention.
