What is Mohs Surgery?
Mohs surgery is a procedure used to treat skin cancer. This technique involves removing layers of cancerous skin until only healthy, non-cancerous skin remains. Also known as Mohs micrographic surgery, this treatment leaves as much healthy skin intact as possible. Thanks to the examination of each layer of removed tissue, this procedure ensures all cancer has been removed at the time of the surgery.
How Much Does Mohs Surgery Cost?
The cost of Mohs surgery will depend on a combination of your specific needs and your health insurance coverage. However, to help make all of our procedures accessible, we are glad to accept a wide range of payment options, including financing through CareCredit® and Union Medical Credit.
Am I a Good Candidate for Mohs Surgery?
If you have basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma or a variety of other skin cancers, you could be a good candidate for Mohs surgery. However, the best way to determine your candidacy for this or any procedure is to schedule a consultation.
How is Mohs Surgery Performed?
At Regeneris Boston, our Mohs surgery procedure is performed on an outpatient basis under a local anesthetic. During your procedure, we will remove thin layers of cancerous skin, examining each layer, until only non-cancerous skin remains.
What is Recovery Like After Mohs Surgery?
Your recovery will vary, according to the nature of your procedure. However, depending on the extent of your surgery, you may have very little downtime. We will discuss the specifics of your procedure during your consultation.
How Long Will My Mohs Surgery Results Last?
Once your skin cancer has been removed, it will be gone. However, you may still have a chance of developing skin cancer again. That is why frequent checkups with your doctor are important to ensure your long-term health.
