Mohs’ micrographic surgery is a technique used to remove the cancer while sparing the most normal, unaffected tissue. It provides the greatest cure rates while also leading to the most cosmetically favorable results. The full periphery and base are checked immediately with a microscope by your dermatologist to see if tumor remains or is completely removed. This is especially important for areas where excess skin is limited, such as the face.
