Mohs surgery is a specialized tissue-sparing surgery performed by specialty-trained dermatologists. It is indicated for skin cancers on the head and neck and larger skin cancers on the body. To ensure clear borders, each piece of tissue is examined microscopically by the Mohs surgeon during the procedure. Mohs surgery is performed in the office, is convenient and effective. We are lucky and honored to have Dr. Malcolm Ke perform our Mohs surgery at ModernSkinMD. He is also an expert in excisions of melanoma, cysts, lipomas and other lumps and bumps.
