Mohs Surgery: The Most Effective Treamtment for Skin Cancer
Mohs Micrographic Surgery
Mohs Micrographic Surgery is the most advanced and effective treatment procedure for skin cancer available today.
Initially developed by Dr. Frederic E. Mohs, the Mohs procedure is a state-of-the-art treatment that has been continuously refined over 70 years. With the Mohs technique, physicians are able to see beyond the visible disease, to precisely identify and remove the entire tumor layer by layer while leaving the surrounding healthy tissue intact and unharmed. As the most exact and precise method of tumor removal, it minimizes the chance of re-growth and lessens the potential for scarring or disfigurement.
Dr. Breza is specially trained in surgery, pathology, and reconstruction, with a fellowship in Mohs surgery from the University of Florida. Mohs surgery has the highest success rate of all treatments for skin cancer—up to 99 percent.
The Mohs technique is also the treatment of choice for cancers of the face and other sensitive areas as it relies on the accuracy of a microscopic surgical procedure to trace the edges of the cancer and ensure complete removal of all tumors down to the roots during the initial surgery.
