Mohs Micrographic Surgery is a highly precise technique that allows for the removal of the visible tumor and any "roots" that may extend beneath the skin surface. Five-year cure rates approach 99% for first-time treatments and 95% for recurrent skin cancers.
Mohs surgery involves the systematic removal and microscopic analysis of thin layers of tissue until all of the skin cancer has been removed. The immediate and complete microscopic examination of excised tissue is what differentiates Mohs surgery from other procedures. Cancerous tissue is removed with minimal disruption of normal skin, minimizing the post-operative wound size and the risk of recurrence while maximizing the cosmetic outcome.

Mohs surgery can be used for nearly all types of skin cancer. Specific variations may be incorporated for certain types of skin cancer. Mohs surgery is specifically indicated for skin cancers of the head, neck, hands, and feet, in addition to other areas. It is also especially useful for the treatment of previously treated/recurrent skin cancers. Mohs surgery has proven highly effective in treating melanomas, especially in cosmetic areas.
