Mohs Surgery for Skin Cancer

Mohs is a microscopically controlled surgical technique used in the treatment of common skin cancers. Dr. Frederic E. Mohs developed the Mohs surgery for skin cancer. Mohs surgery is also referred as Mohs micrographic surgery. Mohs surgery is performed by removing the tissue in multiple steps performed on the same day, being guided at each step by microscopic analysis of the tissue to decide whether further surgery to remove more tissue is necessary on the same day itself.
