What is MOHS Surgery?
MOHS surgery, or MOHS micrographic surgery is an effective way to treat skin cancer with minimal downtime and scarring. It’s an outpatient procedure that is done in a specially trained dermatologists office and has even been shown to effectively treat melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer.
After having MOHS surgery, your surgeon may recommend post-MOHS reconstructive surgery. This type of reconstructive plastic surgery can be performed immediately after any skin cancer lesions are removed. Many patients question who should perform reconstruction: their MOHS surgeon or a plastic surgeon. This is where Plastic Surgery Specialists comes in.
