What is Mohs Surgery?
Mohs micrographic surgery is a highly specialized procedure for the removal of skin cancer. Developed by Dr Frederick Mohs in the late 1930s, Mohs surgery has been refined into an incredibly precise and tissue-sparing process, and is the gold standard for treating most skin cancers.
The Mohs Process
The roots of a skin cancer may extend beyond the visible portion of the tumor. If these roots are not removed, the cancer will recur.
The Rest of the Process
Skin Cancer and the Sun
The prevalence of skin cancer is on the rise. Most skin cancers are due to intense and cumulative sun exposure. Fortunately, most skin cancers are curable when caught early.
