What Is Mohs Surgery?
Named after Dr. Frederic Mohs, who developed the technique in the 1930s, Mohs surgery is a precise surgical technique commonly used to treat basal and squamous cell carcinoma, two of the most common types of skin cancer. Mohs surgery is unique in that it allows the surgeon to remove the cancerous tissue layer by layer, examining each layer under a microscope as it is removed. This technique removes all cancerous cells while preserving as much healthy tissue as possible. Mohs surgery is often recommended for skin cancers in areas where preserving healthy tissue is crucial, such as the face, ears, and hands.
