About Mohs Surgery
Mohs micrographic surgery is the most advanced, precise, and effective treatment for removing most skin cancer types. Mohs Surgery is a surgical technique that removes the visible tumor and any microscopic cancer cells that may have extended beneath the skin surface.
Our Mohs Surgeons
Dr. Oliver Wisco and Dr. Matthew Clark are Mohs surgeons with advanced experience in removing skin cancers. During Mohs surgery, Dr. Wisco or Dr. Clark progressively removes and microscopically examine thin layers of cancer-containing skin until cancer-free tissue remains. The immediate microscopic examination of removed tissue is what differentiates Mohs surgery from other skin cancer removal procedures. The cancerous tissue is removed with minimal normal tissue sacrifice, minimizing post-operative wound size and recurrence chances. Mohs surgery is typically completed in an outpatient setting with a local anesthetic.
