Visit Advanced Dermatology of North Central Ohio for trusted skin cancer treatments like Mohs Surgery.
Successfully used to treat basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and some types of melanoma, Mohs surgery is widely considered to be one of the most precise surgeries for skin cancer. With Mohs Surgery, your surgeon carefully removes only the cancerous tissue while preserving healthy tissue. To confirm this, each layer removed is microscopically tested for cancerous cells before the next step of surgery proceeds. This procedure is also designed to ensure that all cancerous cells are being removed, resulting in a high success rate.
Its high cure rates and low recurrence rates result in Mohs surgery being one of the most recommended treatments for some types of skin cancer.
