Mohs Micrographic Surgery

Mohs micrographic surgery is the most effective and advanced treatment for skin cancer. It offers the highest potential for cure.

Originally developed in the 1930s, Mohs micrographic surgery has been refined into the most advanced, precise, and effective treatment for a large variety of skin cancer types. Skin cancer often resembles the “tip of the iceberg” with more tumor cells growing downward and outward into the skin like the roots of a tree.

"I had a very small basal cell carcinoma on the middle of my nose. I had a consult for Mohs surgery with Dr. Boyer whose knowledge, experience, thoroughness and credentials are most impressive. I researched him on Yelp, Vital Signs and Healthgrades before committing to seeing him. I wasn't disappointed. He's direct and kind. No nonsense and a nice bedside manner. "
