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.
