The close collaboration allows for a comprehensive approach to skin cancer removal, ensuring that both the cancer and its microscopic roots are fully excised. This team-based method also facilitates seamless transition to reconstructive surgery if needed, providing a holistic treatment plan for patients undergoing Mohs surgery.
