A skin cancer diagnosis is something that shouldn’t be taken lightly, even if it’s in the early stages. At Levy Dermatology in Memphis, Tennessee, our go-to removal treatment for basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma is Mohs Micrographic surgery. Mohs is safe, effective, and provides up to a 99% cure rate.
Mohs Micrographic surgery is a highly specialized technique that removes skin cancer one layer at a time while preserving as much healthy tissue as possible. The procedure is done as an outpatient treatment under local anesthetic. You’ll wait for the in-office as each removed tissue layer is closely examined under a microscope for cancerous cells. Afterward, the wound is meticulously closed by your dermatologist.
