Mohs Micrographic Surgery

Mohs Surgery

The Skin Institute at Rapid City Medical Center is home to two of only 1,400 fellowship trained Mohs micrographic surgeons in the country. This state-of-the-art skin cancer procedure offers the highest potential for recovery. 

With the Mohs technique our physicians are able to see beyond the visible disease, to precisely identify and remove the entire tumor, layer by layer, while leaving the surrounding healthy tissue intact and unharmed. As the more exact and precise method of tumor removal, Mohs surgery minimizes the chance of regrowth and lessens the potential for scarring and disfigurement. 

Because our physicians are specially trained in surgery, pathology and reconstruction, Mohs surgery is the treatment of choice for cancers of the face and other sensitive areas. It has the highest potential for success of all treatments for skin cancer. This microscopic surgical procedure traces the edges of the cancer and ensures complete removal of all tumors down to the roots during the initial surgery. 

With a 99 percent success rate, Mohs micrographic surgery is the most effective method for removing nonmelanotic skin cancers such as basal cell cancer, squamous cell cancer, sebaceous carcinoma, Extramammary Paget’s disease, Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberant and others.
