Mohs Micrographic Surgery:
Mohs surgery combines the surgical removal of the tumor with the immediate examination of the tumor and the underlying diseased tissue. This process allows the Mohs surgeon to identify, remove and examine the entire tumor and roots, layer-by-layer until the cancer is completely gone. Mohs surgery provides the highest cure rate, has the lowest chance of re-growth, minimizes the potential for scarring or disfigurement and is the most exact and precise means of removal of skin cancer.
