Mohs Surgery in Denver, Meridian, Castle Rock, Aurora & Parker, CO

Mohs Surgery Denver CO

Mohs micrographic surgery is an advanced technique for the removal of skin cancer. During the procedure, a specially trained surgeon removes skin cancer tissue in a thin layer, sparing most of the healthy tissue that surrounds the tumor. After each layer is removed, the tissue is prepared for study in an on-site laboratory. The Mohs surgeon then examines each section of tissue under a microscope for the presence of cancer cells and makes a map of the site. In subsequent stages, only areas with microscopic tumor present are removed, maximally sparing the surrounding normal skin. The procedure is repeated in stages until all cancer cells are removed.

Mohs micrographic surgery is usually performed on the face, neck, and head. It is also sometimes recommended for recurrent and aggressive skin cancers on other parts of the body.

Cure rates for primary basal cell and squamous cell skin cancer using Mohs micrographic surgery are, many times, higher than for other skin cancer surgeries. Cure rates for secondary and recurrent skin cancers depend on the type and aggressiveness of the tumor.

Mohs micrographic surgery is a complex technique that requires a skilled dermatologist with advanced training. Dermatology Associates of Colorado offers Mohs surgery with a board certified, fellowship trained surgeon. Our surgeon works with a dedicated professional staff that offers our patients a caring and safe environment for a complicated procedure.
