Mohs microsurgery

Mohs microsurgery

During Mohs microsurgery, a specially-trained physician shaves one thin tumor layer at a time from the skin, examining each under a microscope for skin cancer. Surgery is stopped when no more disease is visible, leaving as much healthy tissue as possible. This procedure attempts to preserve the skin’s appearance as much as possible and minimize aesthetic impact.
