WHAT IS MOHS SURGERY?
Mohs micrographic surgery is a minor yet advanced surgical procedure that removes skin cancer effectively using only local anesthesia. Mohs is a very precise, highly detailed technique in which small layers of skin are sequentially removed and immediately examined under the microscope until the samples indicate that the skin cancer is completely gone. By removing only tissue where cancer is known to be present, the technique combines a very high cure rate with good preservation of normal skin. Palmetto Dermatology has our very own Mohs micrographic surgeon at our West Columbia practice.
