Mohs surgery is a procedure used to remove skin cancers (most commonly basal and squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma) in a way that preserves a maximum amount of healthy tissue. It is useful for skin cancers when: (1) the location of the cancer is near sensitive areas, like the fingers or face;(2) earlier treatments have not worked;(3) a skin cancer is large; and(4) regular surgery is less likely to remove the cancer. This procedure video illustrates the procedure on 2 patients with basal cell carcinoma. Click the Related article link to learn more.
