Mohs Surgery

Mohs Surgery is a highly specialized procedure for the total removal of skin cancers. The first step of the procedure involves the surgical excision of cancer-containing tissues, followed by a systematic, microscopic examination of all cut surfaces that are correlated using a drawn map of the wound (hence the term “micrographic”).

Dr. Frederic Mohs Developed This Innovative Technique in the 1930's

Over 70 years ago, Dr. Frederic Mohs (1914-2002), formerly Professor Emeritus of Surgery at the University of Wisconsin, developed a technique to remove skin cancers, which provided patients with an excellent chance for cure. The technique was initially known as chemosurgery, but is now called Mohs micrographic surgery after its inventor. Because this method is time consuming and requires highly specialized training and personnel, Dr. Gharia is one of a few fellowship trained physicians in the United States that offers this treatment.
