The purpose of Mohs Micrographic Surgery is to surgically treat most common skin carcinomas, basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma with maximum efficiency.
The technique consists of analysing the excised tumour under the microscope straight away at the clinic. To determine if the tumour is completely removed, a complete indepth image of it is taken. This enables us to have an accurate account of where there are still traces of tumour and to re-excise only in the affected area.
Thus, it leads to a preservation of healthy tissue and an eradication of the tumour. The excised area is reconstructed at the end of intervention by conventional techniques of dermatological surgery (flap or graft).
