Board-certified dermatologists have completed three or more years of an accredited residency program in dermatology. Passed exams demonstrating their dermatology knowledge and their ability to apply that knowledge to treat patients. Made a commitment to stay current on the latest dermatology advances by participating in continuing certification activities and assessments throughout their careers.

What is micrographic dermatologic surgery?

Micrographic dermatologic surgery, commonly known as Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS), is a precise surgical technique used to treat various types of skin cancer. During Mohs surgery, layers of cancer-containing skin are progressively removed and examined until only cancer-free tissue remains. It is named after Dr. Frederic Mohs, who developed the technique. This type of surgery is particularly valuable when the cancer is in a critical area where it is important to preserve as much healthy skin as possible, such as on the face or hands. It provides a high cure rate.

After Mohs micrographic surgery to remove skin cancer, there may be a wound or defect left in the skin where the cancer was removed. The goal of skin reconstructive surgery after Mohs is to repair this wound and restore the appearance and function of the affected area as much as possible. This is a critical part of the process, especially when Mohs surgery is performed on cosmetically sensitive or functionally important areas, such as the face, ears, and hands.

What does it mean to be a fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon?

Fellowship-training is administered by the American College of Mohs Surgery.  A fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon have completed 1 – 2 years of additional training post-residency, performed a minimum of 650 Mohs surgeries during training, undergone a competitive review and selection process, has had exposure to rare tumor pathology, difficult tumor locations, and complex wound reconstruction and completed a rigorous application and review process.
