Mohs surgery offers you a promising alternative for skin cancer treatment. It is ideal for basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma on the scalp, ears, nose and face. This type of cancer treatment is ideal for skin cancer that has returned or has not been easily contained. It involves removing a thin layer of tissue, which is immediately tested. The process continues layer by layer until no additional cancer cells are detected. Once the procedure is over, the area is closed.

Why Choose Mohs Surgery?

When you are struggling with skin cancer, it can be extremely frustrating, especially if it is in an area where you can see it. You have to worry about it disfiguring you. Worst of all, it could spread and put your life in jeopardy. By choosing to have Mohs surgery, you are going to benefit from one of the most effective forms of cancer removal there is. You will have peace of mind as you learn that your skin cancer is gone on the day of your treatment.
