What is Mohs surgery?

Mohs surgerry of the face and neck is often a two part procedure. The first step is removing the cancerous cells from the skin. Mohs surgery ensures complete removal of skin cancer while minimizing removal of surrounding, normal (non-cancerous) tissue. This is done in areas where tissue preservation is important, such as on the face or neck. A specialized dermatologist reviews pathology in real-time to optimize cancer removal and tissue sparing.

Once all of the cancer is confirmed to be gone, patients are directed to Dr. Hrisomalos for the reconstructive portion of the procedure. Mohs reconstruction may involve skin grafting or rearranging local tissue as a “flap.” Cartilage may also be needed in certain areas, such as the nose, to support and avoid obstruction of the nasal airway.

Ideally, after seeing a Mohs surgeon and Dr. Hrisomalos, a patient will be free of skin cancer and on their way to recovery!
