A surgery that is used for skin cancers that need to be removed from areas such as the face or digits, where the sparing of the normal skin is imperative.
Mohs surgery allows the skin cancer to be removed without taking an excessive amount of surrounding normal tissue. Mohs surgery allows for excellent curative rates as 100 percent of the margin is evaluated. This technique is ideal for larger, recurrent or more aggressive tumors.
Mohs surgeons at the UT Health San Antonio Cancer Center have specialty training in this technique If multidisciplinary care is required, it can be coordinated among our many available subspecialties, including Medical and Surgical Oncology, Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT), Ophthalmology, Plastic Surgery, Nuclear Medicine and Radiation Oncology.
