Mohs Micrographic Surgery, an advanced treatment procedure for skin cancer, offers the highest potential for recovery— even if the skin cancer has been previously treated. This procedure is state-of-the-art treatment in which the physician serves as surgeon, pathologist and reconstructive surgeon. It relies on the accuracy of a microscope to trace and ensure removal of skin cancer down to its roots. This procedure allows dermatologists, trained in Mohs Surgery, to see beyond the visible disease, and to precisely identify and remove the entire tumor, leaving healthy tissue unharmed. This procedure is most often used in treating two of the most common forms of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.
This is a unique process for the precise removal of skin cancer. This type of surgery has the highest cure rate (98-99%) and preserves the greatest amount of healthy tissue. Read more about Mohs Micrographic Surgery: www.mohscollege.org/AboutMMS.html.
