About Mohs Centre
Mohs micrographic surgery is a detailed surgical procedure to treat aggressive non-melanoma skin cancers, mainly on the face and neck. Mohs surgery is not done as a routine procedure. For most routine skin cancers, simple cutting out (excision) or scraping is done. Patients who come for a Mohs procedure have been selected as having unusual or more difficult tumours because of their type, size, location, or failure of other techniques to produce a cure.
Patients are referred to the centre after the diagnosis has been confirmed with a biopsy, and the cancer is considered complex. Patients must be referred to the centre by a dermatologist, otolaryngologist or plastic surgeon.
