Mohs Micrographic Surgery for Skin Cance

  1. 1. Mohs Micrographic Surgery for Skin Cancer By Sally Booth
  2. 2. Introduction • A second-generation physician, Dr. Sally A. Booth runs an eponymous, private dermatology practice in Indianapolis, Indiana, the Booth Dermatology & Cosmetic Care Center. Dr. Sally Booth is proficient in treating skin cancer, including the use of Mohs micrographic surgery for skin cancer removal. Its inventor, Dr. Frederic Mohs, developed the procedure in the 1930s. It has proven to be the best method for curing two major skin cancers, basal cell carcinomas (which affect the deepest layers of the skin) and squamous cell carcinomas (which affect the upper layers).
  3. 3. Mohs Micrographic Surgery • Procedurally, after numbing the area with a local anesthetic, the surgeon slices off thin layers of skin tissue. He or she places each layer under a microscope and looks for cancer cells. Each slice is coated with a staining chemical that reveals cancerous growths. The surgeon repeats this process over and over until no cancer is found in the tissue cut away. The operation is then over. In other types of skin cancer surgery, the affected tissue is removed and examined later. By contrast, in a Mohs procedure, the skin is tested for cancer during the operation itself.
