Mohs Micrographic Surgery
UAMS specializes in the most advanced and effective treatment option for skin cancer. As the most exact and precise method of tumor removal, Mohs Micrographic Surgery minimizes the chance of regrowth and lessens the potential for scarring.
Mohs Micrographic Surgery is one of the most advanced and effective surgical methods for treating skin cancer with up to a 99% success rate. Using this procedure, malignant skin lesions are removed in thin pie-shaped pieces and examined immediately under a microscope to determine if all malignant tissue was removed.
The Mohs procedure is especially helpful for patients with skin cancer on their face, which is one of the most common locations for the cancer to appear.
This procedure is offered by the UAMS Dermatology Cancer Clinic, one of the few locations in Arkansas able to perform this service.
