Mohs Surgery

Schedule an appointment today!

Mohs surgery has the highest cure rate of any skin cancer treatment.

Mohs Surgery is a precise, safe and effective way of removing skin cancers.


Under local anesthesia, layers of tissue are removed and examined under a microscope at our onsite laboratory. This process is repeated, if necessary, until all the cancer is removed and only normal tissue remains.


Using this technique, 100 percent of the surgical margin can be checked, while removing the least amount of normal tissue.

What can I expect during my appointment?

Patients going through with a Mohs Surgery will have previously had a pre-op appointment with Dr. Galeckas and his team to discuss treatment options. Also, during the pre-op appointment, the team will discuss with the patient the process of surgery day, including the expected surgery length and healing timeframe. Any post-op appointments or care needed will be scheduled on the day of the surgery.

What is involved in training for Mohs surgeons?

Fellowship-trained Mohs surgeons have obtained the highest possible level of education and training available for the treatment of skin cancer. This training allows Mohs surgeons to accurately interpret slides of tissue from complex tumors. Mohs surgeons are also trained to perform a wide breadth of surgical skin reconstructions — from simple closures to flaps, grafts and complicated multi-step repairs.


Please ask your primary care physician for a referral for Mohs Surgery and to learn more information.
