The treatment of choice for cancers of the face and other sensitive areas, the MOHS technique allows the physician to precisely identify and remove the entire tumor, leaving surrounding healthy tissue intact and unharmed. First, the surgeon will excise the tumor. The specimen will then be immediately prepared and examined by surgeon, who is also our in-house pathologist. The specimen will have been specially marked, so that if the cancer has not been entirely removed, the surgeon can then immediately return to the site and remove only what is absolutely necessary, leaving as little scarring as possible. Because our MOHS specialists are at the height of their field in surgery, pathology, and re-construction, this procedure has the highest success rate of all treatments for skin cancer.
