Micrographic Surgery is performed by surgical dermatologists on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia.
This procedure is one the
most advanced techniques for the removal and treatment of skin cancer. By
way of the simplest description, Moh’s surgery is when tissue is removed
one layer at a time, then microscopically examined for remaining cancer
cells. The process is repeated layer-by-layer until cancerous cells are
no longer apparent and only healthy tissue remains. This treatment is
indicated for skin cancers where recurrence is likely, i.e. face, ear,
lips nose and scalp. It is also one the most effective treatments
available with a very high success rate.
