Welcome to the Chicago Skin Clinic, where your skin's health and beauty are our top priority. We're excited to introduce a new service to our esteemed clients: Mohs Micrographic Surgery, a cutting-edge, highly effective treatment for skin cancer. This addition to our suite of dermatological services underlines our commitment to providing the highest standard of care, utilizing the most advanced techniques available.

Mohs Micrographic Surgery: Precision and Peace of Mind

Mohs surgery is a precise surgical technique used to treat skin cancer. It involves removing cancerous cells layer by layer, examining each layer under a microscope until no cancer cells remain. This method ensures the complete removal of cancer while sparing as much healthy tissue as possible, making it the gold standard for treating many types of skin cancer, including basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.

Why Choose Mohs Surgery?

Mohs surgery is performed for its unparalleled accuracy, high cure rate, and the ability to conserve as much healthy tissue as possible. It is especially recommended for treating areas where preserving cosmetic appearance and function are important, such as on the face, ears, nose, hands, feet, and genitals. Mohs is also ideal for cancers that have recurred after previous treatment or are at a high risk of recurrence.

What to Expect During Your Procedure

At Chicago Skin Clinic, your comfort and safety are paramount. The Mohs surgery process is meticulously carried out by our skilled specialists in a state-of-the-art facility. The procedure typically involves:

  • Local Anesthesia: To ensure you're comfortable and pain-free throughout.
  • Layer-by-Layer Removal: Each layer of tissue is carefully removed and examined.
  • Microscopic Examination: Immediate examination of the tissue to determine the presence of cancer cells.
  • Reconstruction: Once the cancer is fully removed, we focus on aesthetic reconstruction to minimize scarring and promote healing.

Aftercare and Recovery

Recovery varies depending on the extent of the surgery. Our team will provide personalized aftercare instructions and support you through your recovery process. Most patients experience minimal discomfort and can resume normal activities shortly after the procedure.
