Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Watts "Mohs Micrographic Surgery is an outpatient procedure first developed by Dr. Frederic Mohs at the University of Wisconsin over 50 years ago. During his long, distinguished career, he saw it evolve into what it is today- the procedure with the very highest cure rate for skin cancer. Mohs Micrographic Surgery is of most use for "high risk" skin cancers, more difficult to treat because of location, tumor type or size, or because of recurrence after previous treatment. Using a microscope, the surgeon precisely tracks any small extensions of tumor, thus removing the tumor completely while removing an absolute minimum of normal tissue."
