Cancer-Free In One Visit: Mohs Surgery

June 14, 2017 / / Newsletter

We’ve been the region’s leader in Mohs Surgery since 2001.  This life-saving procedure has helped almost 20,000 people to become cancer-free in just one visit.  Keep reading for details on how the process works.

Step One:  The Referral

  • You receive a diagnosis of skin cancer from your dermatologist
  • The dermatologist refers you to our office to remove the skin cancer via Mohs Surgery

Step Two:  The Phone Call

  • You call our office to begin the process
  • Our friendly office staff collects your information over the phone
  • We send you paperwork to complete prior to your first appointment
  • Once you complete your paperwork and return it to our office, we contact you to schedule Mohs Surgery

Step Three:  Scheduling Mohs Surgery

  • You’ll be contacted by Gregg, our Mohs Surgery Scheduler
  • Gregg will review the details of what to expect and how to prepare
  • Surgeries are performed in the morning on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays
  • Gregg will help you schedule your surgery

Step Four:  The Day of Surgery

  • You arrive to our office for your procedure
  • After check-in, we begin the process of removing the lesion in very thin layers
    • This process can take one to four hours or longer, so be sure to bring snacks and busywork
  • After the removal of each layer, we test the layer in our onsite lab to ensure all the cancer cells are gone
  • When our lab results reveal the cancer cells are gone, the ideal closure is performed
  • You are bandaged and sent home to recover, cancer-free!

Step Five:  The Follow-Up

  • In most cases, your sutures will be removed in 5-7 days
  • We’ll see you in three months to follow-up on the area and ensure your continued health

It is our pleasure to continue to provide the highest level of care for our Mohs Surgery patients.  Thank you for choosing us for your Mohs Surgery.
