What is Mohs Skin Cancer Surgery?
Mohs surgery, also called Mohs micrographic surgery, is a precision surgical technique that is used to remove all parts of cancerous skin tumors, while at the same time preserving as much healthy tissue as possible. Cancer cells can spread deep into the skin and almost tentacle-like, spread out and away from the superficial mole or bump on your skin. Removing all of the affected tissue is crucial to the success. One small cell left behind can start a cascade of new cancer growth. Mohs surgery offers the best techniques for discovering and removing all the “bad” cells.
