Mohs micrographic and reconstructive surgery is the most advanced procedure available to treat skin cancer.
Performed under local anesthetic by fellowship-trained surgeons, Mohs surgery provides the highest cure rates and best cosmetic outcomes for skin cancer patients.
Fellowship trained Mohs surgeons are highly trained skin cancer specialists with expertise in cutaneous oncology and facial reconstructive surgery. ACMS fellowship-trained Mohs surgeons provide the highest level of care available for patients with high risk skin cancers.
How Mohs Works:
The Mohs procedure involves surgically removing skin cancer layer by layer and examining the tissue under a microscope until healthy, cancer-free tissue around the tumor is reached. The tissue is inked and mapped, so that layers of tissue are precisely removed only where cancer is detected.
Once the cancer is completely removed, the area is reconstructed to preserve your appearance and attain the best aesthetic outcomes. By following the fundamental principles of reconstructive surgery, scars are concealed in natural expression lines and other facial boundaries whenever possible.
