About Bingham Memorial Mohs Surgery

During Mohs surgery, thin layers of cancer-containing skin are progressively removed and examined until only cancer-free tissue remains. This increases the chance of a cure and reduces the need for additional treatments or additional surgery.

Mohs surgery is especially useful for skin cancers that:

  • Are large or aggressive
  • Are located in areas where you want to preserve as much healthy tissue as possible, such as around the eyes, ears, nose, mouth, hands, feet, and genitals
  • Have a high risk of recurrence or that have recurred after previous treatment
  • Have borders that are hard to define

Mohs surgery is nearly painless and is usually done on an outpatient basis using a local anesthetic.
