Moh’s micrographic surgery is an advanced and precise technique used to treat poorly defined head and neck skin cancers (can be used on other areas as well).
The skin cancer is surgically removed in stages to be processed in the onsite lab. The tissue is examined under the microscope until no tumour cells are remaining. This technique has the highest surgical success rate of 99%.
- The tissue gets analysed on the day itself to determine complete clearance of the cancer.
- Maximises healthy tissue preservation.
- Smaller defect compared to conventional surgery.
- Keeps scaring to minimum.
Surgery starts early in the morning and is performed under local anesthesia. It is completed on the same day itself,depending on the extend of the tumour and the method for reconstruction.
