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. However, because the cancer is removed in a methodical, step-wise fashion we are unable to guarantee how long it will take to remove, clear, and potentially repair the defect left behind. Each skin cancer is unique and may or may not have superficial or deep roots which will determine treatment complexity.

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.

  • Consultation with Dr. Tull - This is a requirement for all new patients.
  • 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.
