Mohs Micrographic Surgery

Mohs surgery is the most effective and advanced treatment for skin cancer today. It offers the highest potential for cure—even if the skin cancer has been previously treated by another method.

The Mohs procedure involves surgically removing skin cancer layer by layer and examining the tissue under a microscope until healthy, cancer-free tissue around the tumor is reached. Mohs surgery has the highest success rate of all treatments for skin cancer—up to 99%.
