When you arrive for your Mohs surgery, a member of our team will clean and numb your skin.
Once your skin is numb, your surgeon will use a scalpel to remove the involved tissue in the affected area. After each stage of tissue removal, your tissue is analyzed. This process will continue until the cancer is cleared and the wound is ready to be closed.
The size and location of your cancer will affect the time it takes to complete your Mohs surgery. It’s best to plan for the procedure to last a full day.
