Mohs surgery

What is Mohs surgery?2018-12-17T13:00:35+02:00

Mohs surgery is an extremely innovative and effective surgical technique for the removal of skin cancer, which has a high rate of healing.

This technique allows for microscopic checks during surgery and for earlier diagnose.

How is it performed?2018-12-17T12:55:10+02:00

The intervention is usually performed with local anesthesia and there is no need for hospitalization. With the Mohs technique the removal of the cancer is done by horizontal layers. While the patient waits in the clinic the tissues are processed. Then a gradual examination of the preparation takes place in horizontal sections allowing for a 100% examination of the surgical borders in three dimensions. If the borders are clear of cancer cells then the wound is closed. If not then the procedure is repeated removing only the area which contains cancer cells until a totally negative tissue examination is achieved.

Why should I choose Mohs surgery?2018-12-17T12:54:32+02:00

With the Mohs method we can achieve total healing in most types of skin cancer with a relapse possibility of 1% while with classic surgical removal relapses reach 7 to 50%.

What is the difference between Mohs surgery and classic surgery?2018-12-17T12:53:53+02:00

In classic surgery the dermatologist removes the skin tumor which is visible and also removes a big part of healthy tissue in order to maximize the possibility of total tumor removal.

Then it is sent to the lab for tissue processing, which takes time and the results are available after 15 days. Conversely in Mohs surgery the skin cancer is removed with the least possible removal of healthy tissue.

Then on the same day and moment after the removal a procedure takes place and through microscopic examination the answer whether it is completely removed or not is given immediately and not many days afterwards.

What are the advantages of the Mohs method?2018-12-17T12:52:58+02:00
  • Quick biopsy done on the dame day
  • Detailed examination of the lesion’s borders
  • Healthy skin saving
