Several types of skin cancers can be treated by Mohs surgery
MOHS surgery was created by Dr. Fredric E Mohs, a general surgeon. Mohs surgery requires multiple, interdependent surgical, laboratory, and pathology steps, usually performed by a physician over the course of a single treatment session. It is a method of obtaining complete margin control during removal of a skin cancer using frozen section technique .The cure rate with Mohs surgery cited by most studies is between 97% and 99.8% for primary basal cell carcinoma, the most common type of skin cancer. The Mohs technique analyzes skin directly under the microscope, and for this reason it provides precise removal of the cancerous tissue, while sparing healthy tissue. In anatomically important areas (eyelid, nose, lips), tissue sparing and low recurrence rates make it the procedure of choice for physicians and patients alike.For more information, please click on the link below and go to the Patient Resources section. www.mohssurgery.org
Dermatologic Surgery & Dermatopathology
Caring for the Health and Beauty of Skin for over 60 years
Dermatopathology is the field of study dedicated to the examination of skin specimens under a microscope. Often, a dermatologist is required to take a small sample of skin for analysis in order to diagnose a rash or skin cancer. The dermatopathologist is the physician specifically trained to interpret this skin specimen. Dr. Ramsay Farah has received this highly specialized training and is board certified in Dermatopathology as well as Dermatology. It is often advantageous to have the dermatologist who is evaluating the patient in the clinic also interpret the skin biopsy specimen. At Farah Dermatology Center, our doctors can do both!
