Mohs Surgery in Kansas

Our team is committed to guiding you through your treatment plan and ensuring that Mohs Surgery is right for you.


Developed in the 1930’s by physician Frederic Mohs, Mohs micrographic surgery has become the treatment of choice for Basal and Squamous Cell Carcinomas. Its superiority over other techniques lies in the precise removal of an invasive tumor that may twist and tunnel under the skin, and remain unnoticed by the normal eye.

The Procedure

The procedure involves a layered removal of the tumor with immediate frozen section microscopic evaluation of all edges of the removed tissue. Because each layer is examined microscopically, the Mohs surgeon can identify the exact area of remaining tumor, while limiting removal of normal unaffected skin. Following complete removal of the skin cancer, the wound is repaired to be as functional and cosmetically appealing as possible. Mohs is performed in our office under local anesthetic. The procedure usually takes only a few hours but we ask that our patients bring a friend or family member, and be prepared to spend the day if necessary.


What Is MOHS Surgery?

Mohs micrographic surgery is the most effective and advanced treatment for skin cancer. It is performed on an outpatient basis using a highly specialized and precise technique that removes the cancer in stages, one tissue layer at a time. This technique allows physicians to precisely identify and remove a tumor while leaving the surrounding healthy tissue intact and unharmed. Mohs surgery offers the highest potential for cure – even if the skin cancer has been previously treated by another method.
