Who performs Mohs micrographic surgery?

Mohs surgery is a combination of several specialised stages, and requires the complementary skills of a team of qualified professionals — a dermatologist, nursing staff, histo-technicians and sometime plastic or oculoplastic surgeons.

Only dermatologists or dermatological surgeons who are specially trained in Mohs micrographic surgery can perform this procedure. This training is additional to that required to become a general dermatologist.

Occasionally, support may be given by other specialists, e.g. a plastic surgeon to reconstruct the wound site, or to provide a skin graft or flap in more complex cases.

Cadogan Clinic is able to provide all of these skillsets to our Mohs patients, and the entire process takes place on-site in our theatres and recovery suite. Your consultation, Mohs surgery, reconstruction and follow-up are all done in the specialist unit courtesy of our multidisciplinary team.

All surgery must be performed in a proper operating theatre with appropriate air changes and nursing staff. Most procedures are performed under local anaesthetic, but general anaesthesia can be made available.
