Mohs Micrographic Dermatologic Surgery
Mohs micrographic surgery is the most effective method for eradicating basal and squamous cell carcinoma, common types of skin cancer, with nearly a 100 percent cure rate. It is the treatment of choice for facial skin lesions and recurring lesions on other parts of the body.
Physicians in the Rutgers Health Mohs Micrographic Dermatologic Surgery program specialize in the procedure. Our doctors are on the faculty of Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, a part of Rutgers University, one of the top research institutions in America. Our doctors are active in clinical research and in teaching about all aspects of dermatology and skin cancer. Each brings life-changing knowledge from the classroom to the exam room.
The treatment we provide for many types of skin cancers can be completed within a few hours. Same-day reconstruction of affected skin areas may also be available.
If you or a loved one has a common type of skin cancer, please make an appointment to visit the Rutgers Health Mohs Micrographic Dermatologic Surgery program.
