Mohs surgery for skin cancer
If you’re diagnosed with skin cancer, turn to a ProHealth dermatologist with advanced training in Mohs surgery – the most effective way to treat many basal cell carcinomas and squamous cell carcinomas. During this procedure, your surgeon removes tissue in thin layers until only healthy cells remain. This helps save as much healthy skin as possible and may prevent additional treatments.
