Mohs Procedure

The Mohs surgery procedure is a highly effective procedure used for the removal of skin cancer.

Overview

Local anesthesia is administered around the area of the tumor while the patient remains awake. There are numerous benefits of using local anesthesia for the Mohs procedure, rather than general anesthesia, including the prevention of lengthy recovery and possible side effects from general anesthesia.

After the area has been numbed, the Mohs surgeon removes the visible tumor along with a thin layer of surrounding tissue. This tissue is prepared and put on slides to be examined under a microscope. If there is evidence of cancer, an additional layer of tissue is taken from the area where the cancer was detected. This procedure ensures that only cancerous tissue is removed, minimizing the loss of healthy tissue.

These steps are repeated until all samples are free of cancer.
