What To Expect?

Mohs surgery is a specialized procedure used to treat basal and squamous cell carcinomas. This outpatient procedure has become the preferred method when it comes to treating areas plagued by these recurring skin conditions. During this advanced surgical technique, a surgeon removes the tumor one microscopic layer at a time until it is completely eradicated. Then, the area surrounding the lesion is carefully examined to ensure all cancerous tissue has been completely eliminated.


Stitches may be required depending on the size of the treated area. For many patients, the wound is insignificant enough to heal on its own over time. Minimal damage to the skin surrounding the tumor means that scarring is usually negligible, making Mohs surgery ideal for lesions that occur on the face or other highly visible areas of the body. Incredibly effective, Mohs surgery has a cure rate as high as 99% in patients with non-melanoma skin cancers.
