Mohs micrographic surgery procedure
Mohs micrographic surgery is a highly effective treatment for certain skin cancers that are in critical facial areas or where previous treatment has been unsuccessful. It can offer the best chance of cure whilst only taking the smallest amount of tissue necessary. The treatment allows the tumour to be removed completely bit by bit under local anaesthetic and then the wound reconstructed in one visit to the hospital, minimising the amount of normal skin removed and potentially reducing scarring. Dr Bray will take a great deal of care to ensure you are pain free or suffer only minor discomfort during your operation.
Non-Mohs skin cancer surgery
For most skin cancers standard (non-Mohs) surgery is sufficient. For certain tumours other methods of 'margin-controlled surgery' are a better choice (e.g. for lentigo maligna). Dr Bray can provide all these surgical treatment options. He can also advise you if non-surgical treatments are an option and provide these as well. He will discuss the pros and cons of each treatment with you before making a recommendation that is tailored to your particular problem and what is important to you. All the options will be discussed with you in as much detail as you want, and your opinion is encouraged when we plan your operation together.
