What Is Mohs Surgery?
Cancer can be a frightening word, but for people diagnosed with skin cancer, Mohs surgery at Skin Win Dermatology could be the answer. Mohs surgery is a procedure that carefully and meticulously removes skin cancer. The purpose of the method is to take as little of your unaffected skin tissue as we can while still delivering an optimal success rate for skin cancer eradication. The surgical technique is used to remove squamous and basal cell carcinomas, melanomas, and other types of skin cancer. We begin this process by thoroughly removing the cancerous tissue one layer at a time. After each and every layer, we will examine the cellular makeup of your skin to find out if any cancer remains. Call our Williston & Minot, ND facilities now to set up an appointment.
How Does Mohs Surgery Work?
Mohs surgery is normally performed following the use of a local anesthetic to numb the affected area prior to starting the treatment. You will be awake the entire time. A scalpel is used to remove a layer of tissue so that it can be carefully analyzed under a microscope. If the sample is found to contain cancer cells, these steps are repeated until all cancerous tissue is removed. The number of layers removed and the length of the procedure depends on the phase of cancer and how long it has been present. The completion of Mohs surgery will leave a wound. Healing solutions vary from simple sutures to close the wound to more involved plastic surgery for larger wounds.
