What is Mohs Surgery?
Mohs is a unique surgery technique that allows a specialized Dermatologist surgeon to safely and effectively remove skin cancer. The benefit to Mohs surgery is that it allows for the surgeon to determine where the cancer cells end and where healthy cells remain. The surgeon does this by removing a layer of skin at a time, checking in between each cut for cancer cells under a special microscope, before determining if they need to remove Therefore, Mohs surgery has a higher cure rate and avoids unnecessary removal of healthy skin.
