Mohs Micrographic Surgery Beverly HillsMohs micrographic surgery is a highly specialized method of skin cancer treatment originally developed by Dr. Frederic Mohs. Mohs surgery is performed by Dr. Hoffman and Dr. Breithaupt in an outpatient setting using local anesthesia.
The skin cancer cells are carefully removed layer by layer and then transferred immediately to a pathology laboratory to check for abnormalities until no signs of cancer remain. This allows for complete removal of non-melanoma skin cancer while minimizing the amount of tissue that needs to be removed.
Once the tumor is successfully treated, reconstruction of the skin can be performed to restore the normal structure and contour of the skin.
