We are proud to offer Mohs Surgery in Greenwich, CT at Greenwich Point Dermatology. Mohs surgery is a highly sought after procedure for the surgical removal of basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. During Mohs surgery, layers of cancer-containing skin are progressively removed and examined until only cancer-free tissue remains. This process allows dermatologists to see beyond the visible disease and precisely identify and remove the entire tumor, leaving healthy tissue unharmed.
Why Mohs Surgery is Recommended for Skin Cancer Removal
Mohs surgery is the gold standard of care for non-melanoma skin cancer because it provides:
- Highest cure rate for skin cancer – up to 99%
- Most exact and precise method of tumor removal
- Reduced treatment time and allows for immediate reconstruction of the wound
- Minimal chance of tumour regrowth
- Least potential for scarring or disfigurement
