Mohs Surgery

Mohs Surgery is a microscopically controlled surgery used to treat common types of skin cancer performed by removing skin cancer layer by layer and examining the tissue under a microscope until healthy, cancer-free tissue around the tumour is reached (called clear margins).

Today, Mohs surgery has come to be accepted as the single most effective technique for removing Basal Cell Carcinoma and Squamous Cell Carcinoma (BCCs and SCCs), the two most common skin cancers. It spares the greatest amount of healthy tissue while also completely removing cancer cells; cure rates for BCC and SCC are an unparalleled 98% or higher with Mohs, significantly better than the rates for a standard excision or any other accepted skin cancer removal method. Unlike other skin cancer procedures where a random sample of the clear margin is examined, by undergoing Mohs surgery, patients get a comprehensive examination of the surgical margin, providing more accurate results.
