Why Choose Mohs Surgery?

At Coastal Dermatology Institute, we’re committed to providing our patients with the highest standard of care in the battle against skin cancer. 

Mohs Surgery involves removing cancerous tissue layer by layer, and examining each layer under a microscope until only cancer-free tissue remains. This method ensures complete cancer removal with the highest accuracy.
By targeting only cancerous tissue, Mohs preserves as much healthy skin as possible, resulting in minimal scarring.
Mohs Surgery has the highest success rate among treatments for most types of skin cancer, offering cure rates of up to 99% for certain cancers.
The procedure’s precision reduces the need for repeat treatments, making it a cost-effective solution for skin cancer.

The Mohs Surgery Process

Your journey begins with a thorough evaluation to determine if Mohs Surgery is the right approach for your skin cancer treatment.
Performed under local anesthesia, the surgery involves precise removal of the cancerous tissue, immediate microscopic examination, and continuation until all cancer cells are removed.

I would never use another dermatologist! Ms. Lyndsay Johnson is so thorough that I am so happy when I leave, I am sure I have been completely “inspected” ! Ms. Johnson found a cancer no one else did, and she saved my life! It was stage 3, and I had seen other doctors who could not find it. As far as I am concerned there is no other dermatologist for me. EVER!

Dr. Centilli and his entire staff who worked on my squamous cell carcinoma were very professional and caring about my wellbeing throughout the entire process. I felt very comfortable being a patient at Coastal Dermatology. The office staff that does the check-in are also a great first introduction to what my experience there as a patient would be like. I want to thank EVERYONE who had a part in providing me with such a positive experience.

Well-managed and efficiently run, and the personnel are engaging and caring. I would not hesitate to recommend this practice to anyone.

We’re Here To All Your Questions

During Mohs Surgery, you’ll be under local anesthesia, and the procedure typically takes several hours, depending on the extent of cancerous tissue. The surgeon removes a layer of skin and examines it under a microscope. If cancer cells are detected, the process repeats until no cancer cells remain.
Recovery varies depending on the surgery’s extent and the individual. Most patients can resume normal activities within a day, though complete healing of the surgical site may take a few weeks. We’ll provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.
As with any surgery, some scarring is expected. However, Mohs Surgery is designed to minimize tissue removal, reducing the size and visibility of scars. We offer guidance on scar care and, if necessary, reconstructive options to improve cosmetic outcomes.
Mohs Surgery is recommended for treating basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and certain types of melanoma, especially in areas where preserving healthy tissue is crucial. A consultation with our Mohs specialists will determine if it’s the right treatment for your skin cancer.
