Mohs Micrographic Surgery
Mohs Micrographic Surgery in NYC
When it comes to skin cancer, removing the entire cancerous growth — not merely the part that’s visible on the surface of the skin — is critical. In many cases, the best way to accomplish this is through Mohs surgery.
What Is Mohs Surgery?
Mohs surgery is a sophisticated out-patient procedure that removes skin cancer in stages, excising small layers of skin one step at a time, and visualizing the excised skin under the microscope, until the skin cancer is completely removed. Performed by board-certified dermatologists who have undergone official American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS) fellowship training, it is an approach that is precise, effective, and tissue-conserving. It boasts the highest cure rate among conventional skin cancer treatments.
