Mohs surgery has come to be the standard of care for removing Basal Cell Carcinomas and Squamous Cell Carcinomas in cosmetically sensitive areas like the face. Basal Cell Carcinomas and Squamous Cell Carcinomas are the two most common skin cancers.
The Mohs surgery technique spares the greatest amount of healthy tissue while expunging cancer cells; cure rates for BCC and SCC are an unparalleled 98 percent or higher with Mohs, significantly better than the rates for standard excision or any other accepted method.
