Facing skin cancer can be daunting, but Mohs Micrographic Surgery offers a highly effective and precise treatment option.

Understanding this procedure can empower you in your battle against skin cancer.

Skin cancer, when left untreated, can lead to severe consequences.

Conventional treatments might not always remove all cancerous cells, leading to potential recurrence or incomplete removal.

Uncertainty and anxiety about the effectiveness of treatments can be overwhelming.

The fear of cancer recurrence or incomplete removal can significantly impact your peace of mind.

Mohs Micrographic Surgery is a specialized technique aimed at treating skin cancer by meticulously removing cancerous tissue layer by layer.

It’s considered one of the most effective treatments for certain types of skin cancer, especially those located on sensitive areas like the face or areas with high recurrence rates.

What It Involves

During Mohs surgery, the surgeon removes thin layers of skin and examines them under a microscope immediately.

This process continues until no more cancer cells are detected, ensuring minimal damage to healthy tissue.

Who It’s For

Individuals diagnosed with certain types of skin cancer, especially those in critical or cosmetically sensitive areas, can benefit from Mohs Micrographic Surgery.

Your dermatologist or surgeon will determine if you’re a suitable candidate based on the type, location, and extent of the skin cancer.

Performed By

Mohs surgery is performed by a specially trained dermatologic surgeon who has expertise in both surgical removal and microscopic examination of the tissue.

Why It’s Performed

This technique ensures the highest precision in removing cancerous cells while sparing healthy tissue.

It significantly reduces the chances of recurrence and minimizes scarring, especially in cosmetically sensitive areas.

What Happens If You Don’t Get It Done

Choosing not to undergo Mohs surgery might increase the risk of incomplete cancer removal, potential recurrence, or the need for more extensive treatments, which could impact your overall health and well-being.


Mohs Micrographic Surgery stands as a gold standard in treating certain types of skin cancer. Its meticulous approach offers high cure rates while preserving healthy tissue and minimizing scarring. Consulting with a dermatologist or surgeon experienced in Mohs surgery can provide personalized guidance for your skin cancer treatment journey.
