What is Mohs Surgery?

Mohs surgery is a specialized technique primarily used for the treatment of skin cancer, particularly basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. It is renowned for its high success rates and ability to spare healthy tissue, making it the gold standard for treating skin cancers in delicate or cosmetically sensitive areas, such as the face, ears, and hands.

The Mohs Surgery Process

Tumor Removal


During the procedure, the surgeon progressively removes layers of the cancerous tissue one at a time, immediately examining each layer under a microscope.

Mapping and Analysis


Once a layer of tissue is removed, it is carefully mapped and color-coded for accurate analysis. The surgeon evaluates the margins to determine if any cancer cells are still present.

Tissue Examination


Each layer is examined under a microscope by the surgeon, who looks for cancer cells along the edges and base.

Wound Closure


Once the cancer is entirely excised, the wound may be repaired using various techniques, such as sutures, grafts, or reconstructive procedures.
