MOHS Micrographic Surgery for Whittier and surrounding areas

What is MOHS surgery?

MOHS surgery is a highly specialized treatment for the total removal of skin cancer. MOHS surgery differs from all other methods of treating skin cancer by the use of detailed cancer mapping techniques and complete microscopic examination of all surgically removed skin.

These are the two unique aspects of the MOHS technique. MOHS surgery is named in honor of Frederic Mohs, the physician who developed the technique.

What are the Advantages of MOHS Surgery?

By using detailed mapping techniques and complete microscopic control, the MOHS surgeon can pinpoint cancerous areas otherwise invisible to the naked eye. In this way, even the smallest microscopic roots of cancer can be removed. The results are: 1.) the removal of as little normal skin as possible, and 2.) the highest possibility of curing the cancer.
