Mohs surgery is the most effective and advanced treatment for skin cancer today. It offers the highest potential for cure, even if the skin cancer has been previously treated by another method. Mohs surgery treats skin cancer through a highly specialized and precise technique that removes the cancer in stages. It involves surgically removing skin cancer layer by layer and examining the tissue under a microscope until healthy, cancer-free tissue around the tumor is reached (called clear margins). Because the Mohs College surgeon is specially trained as a cancer surgeon, pathologist, and reconstructive surgeon, Mohs surgery has the highest success rate of all treatments for skin cancer – up to 99%.
The Mohs unit is directed by Dr. Evan Jones who has completed specialized training for this procedure alongside Dermatologic Surgery. We have recently welcomed Alumni Jordan Slusky, MD., Mohs Surgeron, Cosmetic Dermatology, Clinical Dermatology, and Associate Residency Program Director.
