Mohs Surgery for Skin Cancer featured on Good Morning America
Today, reporters on ABC's 'Good Morning America' discussed Mohs Micrographic Surgery, a revolutionary skin cancer treatment that offers the best cure rate of melanoma. A primary feature of Mohs Surgery is that it minimizes damage to tissue surrounding the treatment area, which makes healing faster, minimizes discomfort, and preserves the cosmetic appearance of the treatment area as much as possible. This cutting-edge treatment requires highly specialized physicians that serve as surgeon, pathologist and reconstructive surgeon. Mohs Surgery is most commonly used to remove non-melanoma skin cancers, like basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, or tumors where specific indications apply. No general anesthetic is required for Mohs Surgery. Instead, a local anesthetic is used to numb the area being treated, enabling many patients to return to their normal activities right away.
