Mohs Micrographic Surgery
Second Edition
Edited by Stephen N. Snow, MD, and George R. Mikhail, MD

A textbook for state-of-the-art treatment of skin cancer

Mohs Micrographic Surgery, an advanced treatment procedure for skin cancer, offers the highest potential for recovery—even if the skin cancer has been previously treated. This procedure is a state-of-the-art treatment in which the physician serves as surgeon, pathologist, and reconstructive surgeon. It relies on the accuracy of a microscope to trace and ensure removal of skin cancer down to its roots. This procedure allows dermatologists trained in Mohs surgery to see beyond the visible disease and to precisely identify and remove the entire tumor, leaving healthy tissue unharmed. This procedure is most often used in treating two of the most common forms of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.

The cure rate for Mohs Micrographic Surgery is the highest of all treatments for skin cancerup to 99 percent even if other forms of treatment have failed. This procedure, the most exact and precise method of tumor removal, minimizes the chance of regrowth and lessens the potential for scarring or disfigurement.

Dr. Stephen N. Snow is professor of dermatology in the department of dermatology at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics. Dr. George R. Mikhail was formerly director of the Mohs Surgery Section of the Henry Ford Health Systems in Detroit, Michigan.
