Mohs Surgery, named for its originator Dr. Frederic Mohs, is a highly specialized surgical technique for treating skin cancer where the doctor performs the role of both surgeon and pathologist.
We perform Mohs surgery because of its benefits which include the following:
- Precise removal of cancerous tissues
- Maximum preservation of uninvolved, healthy tissue
- Highest cure rate of all skin cancer treatments
- Performed by a fellowship trained Mohs surgeon
Henghold Dermatology is one of the only practices in this region that is able to remove malignant melanoma using the Mohs surgery technique.
