Mohs surgery is microscopically controlled surgery used to treat common types of skin cancer. It is one of the many methods of obtaining complete margin control during removal of a skin cancer (CCPDMA: complete circumferential peripheral and deep margin assessment.) Using frozen section histology CCPDMA or Mohs surgery allows for the removal of a skin cancer with very narrow surgical margin and a high cure rate which makes it a procedure of choice by many physicians.
