What is Mohs Micrographic Surgery?
Mohs surgery, also known as microscopically controlled surgery, was developed by Dr. F. Mohs in the 1940's. It is a common procedure used to treat certain skin cancers and to prevent the recurrence of that cancer. Mohs Micrographic Surgery offers the highest cure rate (up to 99% for basal and squamous cell carcinomas).This precise method of treating skin cancers allows us to surgically remove the skin cancer and immediately examine the tissue to identify any remaining cancerous tissue.

When is Mohs surgery used? Where is Mohs surgery performed?
Mohs surgery is performed on an outpatient basis and requires a local anesthetic. In addition to having a higher success rate, Mohs is also recognized for its precision, making it the most aesthetic choice for skin cancer treatment.

How long is the recovery time?
Recovery time depends on the size of the skin cancer. While some wounds can heal by themselves, others may require sutures, a small skin graft or in some cases, reconstructive surgery. If any discomfort should occur following this treatment, it is usually very mild and can be treated with Tylenol. While minimal bleeding is common, you should seek immediate medical attention if you experience persistent, excessive bleeding.

Who performs Mohs surgery?
Fellows of the American Society for Mohs Surgery as well as Fellowship-Trained Surgeons of the American College of Mohs Surgery are both qualified to perform Mohs Sugery. Drs. Ammar and Fernandez both are active members and Fellows of the American Society for Mohs Surgery, having successfully completed the Mohs surgery national examination as well as the necessary case load to obtain certification as Mohs surgeons.
