Mohs Surgery

Mohs surgery is the most highly effective technique for removing skin cancer. After using a local anesthetic to numb the area, a surgeon removes the cancer one layer of skin at a time. Each layer is immediately checked under a microscope for cancer cells, and layers are removed until no more cancer is seen. This technique gives the highest cure rate (98%) of all methods. Because the surgeon removes only the minimum amount of tissue, patients also receive the best cosmetic results. Overall, Mohs surgery eliminates the guesswork in skin cancer removal, producing the best therapeutic and cosmetic results.

Mohs surgery is ideal for patients with:

  • Basal Cell Carcinoma
  • Squamous Cell Carcinoma
  • Facial lesions in difficult areas
  • Large tumor(s)
  • Cancer recurrence

At Avera Dermatology, we’re honored to offer two surgeons, Dr. Brian Knutson and Dr. Jenny Nelson, with the specialty training required to perform Mohs surgery.
