Mohs surgery is the current standard of care for facial skin cancers as defined by Cancer Care Ontario.
The innovative procedure was originally developed years ago by Dr. Fredrick Mohs and has been refined into the most advanced, precise, and effective treatment for skin cancers. With the Mohs technique, your surgeon can precisely identify and remove an entire tumor while minimizing damage to the surrounding healthy tissue.
The Mohs procedure involves surgically removing skin cancer layer by layer and examining each section of tissue under a microscope until healthy, cancer-free tissue around the tumor is reached (called 'clear margins').
We also provide cosmetic procedures including Botox, filler injections, mole removal and more. Please visit our cosmetic website for more information.
For visitors outside of Toronto, we provide both cosmetic and skin cancer surgery at our Mississauga location here.
The Mohs surgeon is specially trained to remove the cancer (surgery), examine the slides under a microscope (pathology) and repair the wound to minimize scarring (reconstruction). Mohs surgery has the highest success rate of all treatments for skin cancer – usually between 97-99%.
Aside from a high cure rate, Mohs surgery helps preserve normal skin around the skin cancer thus limiting the amount of normal tissue removed. This preservation of skin helps make the scar as small as possible.
Because our lab is on site we can process the tissue immediately. Instead of waiting days for results.
The Mohs and Plastic surgeons at the Carlton Skin Cancer Cinic have been performing skin cancer surgery for years. All of the Mohs surgeons are dermatologists who have done fellowship training approved by the American College of Mohs Micrographic Surgery (ACMS), the most rigorous and highly recognized training available worldwide. The plastic surgeons are all approved plastic surgeons by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and also have extensive experience in skin cancer treatment, both on the body and face.
