Mohs Surgery is a form of margin-controlled surgery that is used to treat various types of skin cancer. Goals of the procedure are to spare normal tissue during removal of the lesion in order to minimize wound size. The procedure is done on an outpatient basis, in the office, under local anesthesia. The patient leaves the office knowing that the entire lesion has been removed successfully. Mohs surgery cure rates average 98-99%.
