What is Mohs Surgery in Reno NV?
In the past, dermatologists were often forced to sort of estimate how much tissue they needed to remove to excise all the cancer cells in a carcinoma.

With Mohs microscopic surgery, surgeons can examine excised cells during the procedure, so they know exactly when they’ve removed all the cancerous tissue. Mohs surgery enables the dermatologist to provide more precise and effective treatment, and also minimizes the cosmetic impact of the surgery on the patient.
