MOHS Micrographic Surgery allows the selective removal of areas of skin affected by skin cancer while protecting as much normal tissue as possible. This method of surgery is named after the physician, Frederic E. Mohs, MD, who developed this surgical technique. Even though this technique is time consuming, the accuracy and chance for the complete removal of skin cancer is very good. As a result, MOHS micrographic surgery is very useful for large or aggressive tumors, those with indistinct borders, near vital functional or cosmetic structures and for tumors where other therapies have failed.
