Mohs micrographic surgery is the most effective and advanced treatment for skin cancer. It is performed on an outpatient basis using a highly specialized and precise technique that removes the cancer in stages, one tissue layer at a time. This technique allows physicians to precisely identify and remove a tumor while leaving the surrounding healthy tissue intact and unharmed. Mohs surgery offers the highest potential for cure – even if the skin cancer has been previously treated by another method. To ensure that your skin cancer treatment is performed to the highest standards of quality and competency, be sure to choose an American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS) fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon.
