About Mohs Skin Cancer Surgery
Mohs Skin Cancer Surgery (also known as Mohs Micrographic Surgery) is one of the most successful skin cancer removal methods available. It is a precise surgical technique where thin layers of cancer-containing skin are progressively removed and examined until only cancer-free tissue remains. This reduces the chance of needing future treatments or surgery. The goal of the surgery is to remove as much of the skin cancer as possible, while minimizing damage to the surrounding healthy tissue.
Mohs Surgery results in immediate and complete skin cancer removal. Its success rate is 97-99%, depending on cancer type, and features both long-lasting results and a shorter recovery time for patients. Sarah Schram, MD is our Mohs Surgeon and is known for her meticulous technique and warm demeanor. She is board-certified by the American Board of Dermatology and is a Fellow of the American College of Mohs Surgery. She is the President, Lab Director, and Co-Owner of Pima Dermatology.
