The Basics

Mohs surgery is renowned for its comprehensive approach to skin cancer treatment, leading to low recurrence rates. By examining each layer of tissue in real-time, surgeons can be confident that they have removed all cancerous cells, significantly reducing the risk of the cancer returning. This high level of accuracy makes Mohs surgery a preferred option for patients who have experienced recurrent skin cancer or who have aggressive tumors requiring thorough removal.

Who is a good candidate?

Candidates who have aggressive or recurrent skin cancer are ideal for Mohs surgery. This procedure allows for thorough examination of each layer of removed tissue, ensuring complete excision of cancer cells. It’s especially useful for individuals whose skin cancer has returned after previous treatment, providing a high success rate for complete removal while reducing the risk of further recurrence.
