Mohs Facial Cancer Surgery

Mohs surgery is considered the most effective technique for treating the two most common types of skin cancer - basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) and squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs). This procedure is done in stages under local anaesthetic, allowing the removal of all cancerous cells for the highest cure rate while sparing healthy tissue.

Blood Test

Mohs surgery is performed by specially trained surgeons who remove the cancerous tissue. The specimens are then analysed  by a pathologist while the patient waits. 

This means it can be done as a single-visit outpatient surgery under local anaesthetic as the lab work done on-site.

Because we are able to examine 100% of tumour margins, this not only spares the healthy tissue surrounding it but also leaves a much smaller scar than traditional cancer surgery.

If any cancer cells remain, we know the exact area where they are and are able removes another layer of tissue from that precise location. This process is repeated until no cancer cells remain giving us an extremely high cure rate.
