Abstract

Mohs micrographic surgery is an excision technique that has been widely adapted as the recommended treatment for basal and squamous cell carcinomas and other skin cancers. It was developed by Frederic E. Mohs in the 1930s and has since advanced in its methods and applications. Mohs developed the practice in the process of determining a method to treat various neoplasms. Mohs micrographic surgery is a modality that involves serial excision of a tumor followed by microscopic evaluation of the tissue. It is a complicated surgical technique that involves scrupulous training and constant adaptation. It has greatly expanded since its inception to include new imaging techniques such as immunohistochemistry and confocal mosaicing microscopy. Further advancements include its application to other medical specialties, such as otolaryngology. This technique began as a revolutionary practice but has since become the standard treatment for a variety of skin cancers.
