Mohs Micrographic Surgery
Mohs surgery is now considered a gold standard for the treatment of skin cancers, particularly basal cell and squamous cell cancers. The advantage with this procedure over other treatment options is that it achieves cancer removal, clear margins, and repair or reconstruction as needed – all in a single appointment with the Mohs surgeon.
Mohs surgery has one of the highest cure rates possible when compared to other treatment options. While other approaches such as excision examine less than one percent of the margins removed, Mohs surgery evaluates almost 100 percent of the tissue borders. This mitigates the likelihood of skin cancer recurrence.
- Removal of cancerous tissue
- Precise mapping of the tissue
- Evaluation of the margins under the microscope
- Repair or reconstruction of the wound once all the margins are clear of malignancy
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the US, which involves uncontrolled growth of abnormal skin cells. More than 3.5 million cases of skin cancer are diagnosed every year, and one in five Americans will develop some form of skin cancer in their lifetime. Treatment of skin cancer must begin before it invades surrounding healthy tissue.
