Mohs Micrographic Surgery is highly specialized, allowing for the selective removal of the skin cancer with the preservation of as much of the surrounding normal tissue as is possible. Because of this complete systemic microscopic search for the â€śrootsâ€ť of the skin cancer, Mohs Micrographic surgery offers the highest chance for complete removal of the cancer while sparing the normal tissue. The cure rate for new skin cancers undergoing Mohs surgery is 99%. As a result, Mohs Micrographic Surgery is very useful for large tumors, tumors with indistinct borders, tumors near vital functional or cosmetic structures, and tumors for which other forms of therapy have failed.

Skin cancer refers to the abnormal, uncontrolled growth of skin cells. One in five people will develop skin cancer in their lifetime, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Risk factors include pale skin, family history of melanoma, being over 40 years old, and regular sun exposure. Fortunately, skin cancer is almost always curable if detected and treated early.
