What is Mohs Surgery?
Mohs surgery, also called Mohs micrographic surgery, is a surgical procedure to remove skin cancers. Mohs surgery is useful for removing cancers that are growing quickly, have recurred, are large, or are located on visible parts of the body. Mohs surgery is carried out to treat basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and types of melanoma.

How is Mohs Surgery carried out?

  • The surgeon removes a section of the visible cancer together with a thin layer of skin.
  • The skin is taken to the laboratory and examined under a microscope.
  • The skin is stained with dye, mapped and checked for the presence of additional cancer cells.
  • Any remaining cancer is located on the body and removed in another layer of tissue. The steps in the procedure are repeated until the final layer removed is confirmed to be cancer-free.
