Mohs Surgery FAQs
I have a documented skin cancer and am interested in Mohs as a treatment option. Who can I talk to?
Dr. Bhambri would be more than happy to discuss this treatment option with you during a Mohs consultation. To schedule a consultation please call 469-757-4410.
Why is Mohs superior to other skin cancer removal techniques?
Mohs Micrographic Surgery offers patients the best possible cure rates and cosmetic results by thoroughly removing the diseased tissue only, preserving any surrounding "healthy" tissue. When compared to other treatments, there is no comparison; Mohs surgery is in a class by itself.
How long does the procedure take?
The excision itself takes approximately 10 - 15 minutes; however, the duration of the procedure depends on the location and size of the skin cancer. While several stages may be required, the sectioning, marking, and microscopic analysis may take up to one hour for each stage alone.
Where is the procedure performed?
The procedure is performed on-site at our clinic.
Will I scar?
While scarring is unavoidable, the Mohs technique offers minimal cosmetic disruption and the best cosmetic results.
