Mohs Micrographic Surgery (also known as Mohs Surgery) is a specialized and advanced treatment method for removing skin cancer. Layers of skin containing cancer cells are strategically removed until only cancer-free tissue remain. Minimal damage is caused to the adjacent skin tissue. This method is used throughout the world and is used to ensure that all cancerous cells are removed. It can be repeated until the entire area infected is clear. This is an outpatient procedure, usually done in a day, using a local anesthetic. Among all treatments for skin cancer, Mohs Micrographic Surgery is affective, up to a 99% cure rate, for basal and squamous cell carcinomas. It is usually used on cosmetically sensitive places like the nose, hairline, feet, and genitals. If your cancer has recurred after other treatments or is it is at a high risk for recurrence, this treatment method might be useful. Mohs Micrographic Surgery offers peace of mind for patients who know the cancer is completely gone.
