Excision vs. Mohs Micrographic Surgery – Which option is best for you?
Aticle Banner Mohs surgery is a specialized procedure often performed for patients who have been diagnosed with skin cancer either as a repeat occurrence or on an area of the face or body that is highly visible, where sparing tissue is important. This particular treatment has a very high success rate and will reduce the amount of scarring left behind, making it particularly appropriate for cancers that are on the facial area. Additionally, it can get cancers that are deep within the skin while keeping the existing, surrounding healthy skin intact. This is because of the way the procedure is performed. Unlike standard excision, Mohs micrographic surgery is performed layer by layer. It removes a section of cancerous tissues which is then evaluated under a microscope immediately after removal. This allows the surgeon to see the borders of the cancerous skin cells and reduce the amount taken each time. The procedure can go deep within the skin, layer by layer, until all the cancerous cells have been removed. The benefit of this is the ability to keep cancer from recurring and provide a high success rate of treatment.
