Mohs Micrographic surgery
What is MOHs Micrographic Surgery?
Mohs micrographic surgery is a technique designed specifically to treat and remove the two most common skin cancers: basal and squamous cell carcinoma. The procedure was developed by Dr. Frederic Mohs in the 1930s and remains the preferred method of treatment for these skin cancers, for good reason: Mohs surgery has a cure rate of more than 98% for new lesions and 95% for recurrent cancers. Mohs is commonly done as an in-office procedure under local anesthesia, allowing patients to return home the same day.
