Mohs micrographic surgery, also known as Mohs chemosurgery, is a highly specialized procedure for the total removal of skin cancers. This surgery uses a layer-by-layer method of removing skin cancer along with microscopic examination of 100% of the removed tissue margins to ensure complete removal. The procedure yields a cure rate of over 99%.
Together, Drs. Amy Kim, Julia Neckman, and D. J. Papadopoulos, have performed more than 20,000 cases of Mohs micrographic surgery. Drs. Kim and Papadopoulos are fellows of the American College of Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Cutaneous Oncology, the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, and the American Academy of Dermatology.
