Mohs surgery is a precise surgical technique used to treat skin cancer.
A cure rate of over 99%
During Mohs surgery, thin layers of cancer-containing skin are progressively removed and examined until only cancer-free tissue remains. Also known as Mohs micrographic surgery, Mohs surgery only removes the diseased layers of skin and spares the surrounding healthy tissue. The removed tissue is checked for cancer activity immediately, allowing your surgeon to confirm that the cancer is gone without the need to wait for pathology results to come back from a lab. While surgical risks and scarring are kept to a minimum, the cure rate for most skin cancers is 99% or better.
