Mohs micrographic surgery is a procedure to remove skin cancers (basal cell carcinomas and squamous cell carcinomas). Mohs surgery is used mostly for high-risk cancers on the head and neck, where keeping normal tissue around the cancer is important.
During the Mohs procedure, a physician will remove the skin cancer, examine the removed tissue under a microscope to ensure that the cancer is fully removed, and then do reconstructive surgery to close the wound.
Mohs surgery is a one-day procedure that does not require an overnight stay in the hospital. You might need to spend the entire day at the clinic, so it is a good idea to bring water, food and something to pass the time, like a book.
