Mohs is a technique to remove certain skin cancers pioneered by the late Dr. Frederic E. Mohs. This process allows minimal tissue removal compared to other surgical modalities of skin cancer treatment. In most cases the cure rate is greater than 95%. This procedure is great for facial skin cancers and other sensitive skin areas because it allows for the least amount of scarring. Mohs is also very successful in treating skin cancers that have recurred. It allows the removal of cancer cells with a high degree of precision and prevents recurrence. Dr. Chappell can determine if Mohs or another treatment will be most efficacious.
