Mohs Surgery (also known as Mohs micrographic surgery) is a technique utilized by trained medical professionals to treat skin cancer by progressively removing thin layers of cancer-containing skin. As they are removed, skin layers are checked for cancerous cells. The treatment is complete when all cancerous tissue has been removed and only cancer-free tissue remains.
Here are some of the benefits of Mohs Surgery over other, more invasive techniques:
Because tissue analysis is done at the time of surgery, the surgeon is able to verify that all cancer cells have been removed at the time of the procedure. This reduces the need for additional treatments and improves patient outcomes.
