Mohs Surgery

The Gold Standard in Skin Cancer Treatment

What is Mohs Surgery?

Mohs surgery is the most effective and least invasive way to treat skin cancers. The surgeon is also the pathologist which allows for precise margin control with removal of the cancer while sparing as much healthy surrounding skin as possible.


What to Expect

Just like the biopsy that was done to diagnose your skin cancer, Mohs surgery is performed under local anesthesia. When you arrive for your Mohs surgery procedure, you can expect to be in a safe and comfortable environment. Our team will provide you with the best care, ensuring that you're experience is a positive one throughout the entirety of your visit.

How to Prepare

After being referred for treatment of a skin cancer, you will be scheduled for a consultation with Dr. Tull and her team to begin our process.

  • Pathology report review - Dr. Tull will see and feel the biopsy site and any remaining tumor.
  • Recommended Treatment - We'll include a suggested surgery date and length of treatment.
  • For example, if your skin cancer involves the tear duct, you will be referred to an oculoplastic (eye) surgeon to perform the repair.
