Mohs micrographic surgery is a specialized, highly effective technique for the removal of skin cancer. The procedure was developed in the 1930's by Dr. Frederic Mohs and is now practiced throughout the world. Mohs surgery differs from other skin cancer treatments in that it permits the immediate and complete microscopic examination of the removed cancerous tissue, so that all roots and extensions of the cancer can be eliminated.
Due to the methodical manner in which tissue is removed and examined, Mohs surgery is recognized as the skin cancer treatment with the highest cure rate of any treatment available, 99%. This procedure, utilizing the most exact and precise method of cancer removal, minimizes the chance of re-growth and lessens the potential for scarring with skin cancer surgery. For most new skin cancers the cure rate is 99%. While the success rate in treating a recurrent skin cancer (previously treated cancer) by conventional means is often as low as 50-80%.
The success rate for Mohs surgery in treating recurrent skin cancers remains high at 95-98%.
