Surgical technique offers high skin cancer cure rate, low tissue loss

Using the Mohs technique, dermatologic surgeons can remove skin tumors down to the "roots" while preserving the surrounding healthy tissue. Mohs surgery not only gives you the highest possible cure rate, but it also allows you to restrict the size of the excision to the smallest possible hole. Because dermatologists receive extensive training in pathology, they are able to detect whether the entire lesion has been removed. More patients are opting for Mohs surgery, particularly for cancers on the head and neck where tissue preservation and cosmetic outcome is of utmost importance.
