Mohs Micrographic Surgery
Skin cancer is the most common kind of cancer. If you have skin cancer, we have the latest technology available to help you.
MaineGeneral Medical Center and MDFMR Dermatology Services in Augusta perform Mohs micrographic surgery, or Mohs surgery. Mohs is a precise surgical technique in which the skin cancer is progressively removed in stages under local anesthesia, in the outpatient setting, until all the cancer has been removed.
After each stage, the margins are microscopically examined for remaining cancer cells and this process is repeated until all your cancer has been removed.
Mohs surgery is the most advanced, precise, and effective treatment for skin cancer. It has the highest cure rates and preserves healthy tissue.
MaineGeneral Medical Center and MDFMR Dermatology Services are the only Mohs provider in the Kennebec Valley.
Mohs is offered by referral only. If you think you could benefit from Mohs surgery, please contact your health care provider or dermatologist.
