What You Need to Know about Mohs Surgery

 If you have been diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma or basal cell carcinoma you owe it to yourself to find out all you can about Mohs surgery. Mohs surgery is different from traditional surgery, because cancerous tissue is removed one layer at a time and examined under a microscope. This approach offers several important advantages when compared to traditional surgery. Consider that Mohs surgery is:

  • Effective, because it boasts a cure rate of 99% for initial cases of skin cancer, and 94% for recurrent cases
  • Convenient, because it is performed on an outpatient basis, with no hospital stay
  • Comfortable, because it typically requires only local anesthetic and is far less invasive than traditional surgery
  • Cosmetically pleasing, because it requires only a minimal amount of tissue to be removed, so you will likely experience less scarring
