Our Mohs surgeons are fellowship-trained and combined have completed over 20,000 Mohs surgeries and subsequent repairs. Mohs surgery is a precise surgical technique used to treat skin cancer. During Mohs surgery, thin layers of cancer-containing skin are progressively removed and examined microscopically until only cancer-free tissue remains. Mohs surgery is also known as Mohs micrographic surgery. Mohs surgery was named after general surgeon, Fredrick E. Mohs, who developed the technique.
