What is Mohs Surgery in Barstow CA?
Mohs surgery in Barstow CA is a special procedure designed primarily for removing basal and squamous cell carcinomas. The dermatologist removes the cancerous cells layer by layer, checking the edges of the tissue each time for evidence of cancer. The surgery continues until all of the cancerous cells are removed. The primary benefit of Mohs surgery over a traditional excision is that it enables the surgeon to target cancer cells with extreme precision, ensuring that all cancerous cells are removed and as much healthy tissue as possible is saved. This results in a less invasive surgery.
