Frequently Asked Questions

What is Mohs?

Mohs Surgery has the highest cure rate for skin cancer. It is a microscopically controlled technique performed to treat both common and rare types of skin cancer. Often, Mohs Surgery is the preferred skin care treatment for removing cancerous tissue on the head and neck. This is because of the technique’s proven success in decreasing the risk of recurrence. Furthermore, Mohs Surgery is highly effective in preserving as much healthy tissue as possible. Additional treatment areas include feet, ankles, shins, nipples, or genitals. Although Mohs Surgery is safe for the face and other sensitive regions, it is not safe for uncomplicated, non-melanoma skin cancer of less than one centimeter that’s located on the trunk or extremities. Our dedicated and caring physicians will help you determine if Mohs Surgery is the best solution for healthy, radiant skin.
