MOHS
MICROGRAPHIC
SURGERY

While predominantly a medical/surgical practice, Knott Street Dermatology also offers medical aesthetic treatments. (See the cosmetic section for more details.) 

Mohs micrographic surgery is a specialized, highly effective technique for the removal of skin cancer. The procedure was developed in the 1930s by Dr. Frederic Mohs and is now practiced throughout the world. Unlike other skin cancer treatments, Mohs surgery allows tissue to be removed in stages and examined under the microscope to facilitate clearance of abnormal cells while you wait. Due to the methodical manner in which the tissue is extracted and examined, Mohs surgery is recognized as the skin cancer treatment with the highest reported cure rate.

If you have any questions about skin cancer or Mohs surgery, please contact us at our NE Portland or Milwaukie offices. Additional information about Mohs surgery can be found on the American Society for Mohs Surgery website at www.mohssurgery.org.
