CAPITULO 124: Mohs micrographic surgery

Mohs Micrographic Surgery (MMS), also known simply as Mohs, is a surgical technique utilized by dermatologic surgeons for the excision of skin cancers. Mohs allows for optimized control and evaluation of the tumor margins while minimizing the quantity of tissue being resected (1).
