Mohs Surgery


It allows the saving of healthy tissue and better postoperative reconstruction possibilities

Mohs surgery is a surgical technique that allows the removal of cutaneous tumors with the highest percentages of cure, close to 100% for primary tumors. This is possible thanks to the microscopic supervision that makes it possible to analyze 100% of the tumor borders of each of the layers and thus be able to guide the surgeon in the successive tumor persistence until the complete extirpation of the cancer.
In addition to the complete removal of the tumor, this method has the extraordinary additional advantage of not specifying blind safety margins. Because the majority of skin cancers occur on the face, this is a great advantage for the patient, since it allows the saving of healthy tissue and better postoperative reconstruction possibilities.


Before surgery, you will be asked about your personal history, drug use and allergies, to know your health status and assess the performance of any tests that may be necessary before surgery. Once the surgery is indicated, you will be given the day and time where it will take place, as well as a detailed budget of the expenses. Likewise, we will provide you with an informed consent, in which possible complications are reflected. Please read and sign it before surgery.
Once in the operating room, anesthesia will be administered in the area to be treated and surgery will be performed for your ailment. At the end, compressive dressings are placed, in order to avoid complications. The doctor will explain the rules to follow in the following days. Usually, it is recommended to take an analgesic for the first 48 hours and not to touch the dressing until the next visit.
Depending on the type of surgery, the stitches will be removed in a period of 5-7 days (it is usual in face surgery) or in 12-14 (other surgeries with a certain tension or location). On that day, thin bands will be placed, which will be kept for another 48 hours.
At the time of withdrawal of points, we will provide you with an anatomopathological report. You will also be told when it is advisable to re-examine in consultation, as it is important to make a periodic follow-up in all patients surgically treated for skin tumors. The interval of follow-up is variable depending on the type of tumor removed, the location or the particular characteristics of each patient, so it will be your doctor who will inform you of the time that has to elapse until the next appointment.
