What is “Mohs?”

0509913001605110565.jpg

Most people hear “Mohs,” and think it’s an acronym. It isn’t. Mohs surgery (technically, “Mohs Micrographic Surgery”) is named after Frederic E. Mohs. He pioneered this state-of-the-art technique.

Interestingly, Dr. Peters‘ father, also a dermatologist, trained with Dr. Mohs in the mid-1960s. Treating patients with the most advanced technology and the highest level of compassion runs in the family.

With cure rates exceeding 99%, Mohs is the most successful treatment of skin cancer available. It’s also less invasive, resulting in faster healing rates. And it can generally be performed under local—rather than general—anesthetic.
