Mohs micrographic surgery is a specialized surgical technique used to treat certain skin cancers, most commonly on the head and neck. This procedure is different from other types of surgery because one physician acts as the surgeon and pathologist. Because margins are checked “real time” while the patient remains in the office, we are able to preserve a maximal amount of healthy tissue while still obtaining fully clear margins around an existing tumor. This often results in smaller defects and smaller scars. Mohs surgery has the highest cure rate among treatment modalities (for appropriate tumors); for example, the cure rate for primary basal cell carcinoma is 98 percent. Your doctor can review whether or not Mohs surgery is an appropriate treatment method for you.
