Mohs Micrographic Surgery

Schedule an Appointment
Mohs Micrographic Surgery for skin cancer removal is the most precise method to remove your skin cancer while leaving the smallest possible scar. Developed by Dr. Frederick Mohs, this specialized method of surgery requires expert skill from our highly trained Mohs Surgeon, Dr. Solomyia Grushchak.

What is Mohs Micrographic Surgery?

Mohs Micrographic Surgery is the most effective treatment for skin cancer available, with a 98% success rate. During the Mohs procedure, Dr. Solomiya Grushchak expertly removes small layers of tissue. Each layer is “mapped” so the cancer cells’ exact locations are pinpointed and all of the skin cancer can be removed, both what is visible to the eye and what is underneath the surface, while leaving the smallest defect possible.

What to expect after Mohs surgery

After the skin cancer has been removed, Dr. Grushchak utilizes precise reconstructive methods to cosmetically minimize scarring, for an aesthetically-pleasing outcome. The Mohs procedure itself is designed to minimize tissue excised due to the small surgical margin of one millimeter, therefore naturally leading to less scarring. 99% of Mohs closures are performed immediately after the surgery by Dr. Grushchak herself for the most cosmetically pleasing outcome.
