Mohs Surgery

A surgery involving cutting away thin layers of the skin to look for signs of — or to treat — skin cancer. This micrographic surgery has a high cure rate and minimizes damage to healthy skin.

What is it?

Mohs surgery stands as the most successful method for addressing common non-melanoma skin cancers such as basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma. This surgical procedure eliminates cancerous cells while preserving healthy tissue, resulting in minimal scarring. After the cells and affected tissue layers are removed, a pathologist will examine them in a lab. Mohs surgery sets itself apart from excisional surgery due to its stage-by-stage approach, with laboratory tests conducted on-site.


This technique, with its impressive success rate, is primarily suggested for patients with high-risk non-melanoma skin cancers (high-risk skin cancers are located on the nose, eyelids, lips, ears, hands, feet and genitals).


Our medical practice boasts several highly skilled Mohs surgeons who are fellowship trained and carry decades of experience. They have consistently received the coveted Top Doc award from Detroit's Hour Magazine.


What to expect

During Mohs surgery, skin cancer layers are precisely and thoroughly removed. The procedure, performed under local anesthesia, involves the surgeon meticulously removing and examining cancerous tissue layer by layer until all cancer cells are eliminated while preserving as much healthy tissue as possible. Minimal discomfort is expected during the procedure, with possible swelling, bruising, or discomfort afterward, typically subsiding within a few days. Depending on the extent of the surgery, wound care and follow-up appointments may be necessary.


Mohs surgery offers high cure rates and minimal scarring, making it an effective skin cancer treatment. Our board-certified dermatologists in Michigan and Indiana are highly trained and experienced in Mohs surgery, ensuring you receive compassionate care throughout. Please note that not all locations offer Mohs surgery. To schedule a consultation with one of our Mohs surgeons, call one of our offices.
