60 years ago, Dr. Frederic Mohs (1914-2002), formerly Professor
Emeritus of Surgery at the University of Wisconsin, developed
a technique to remove skin cancers, which provided patients
with an excellent chance for cure. The technique was initially
known as chemosurgery but is now called Mohs micrographic
surgery after its inventor. Because this method is time consuming
and requires highly specialized training and personnel, few
medical centers or offices in the United States are equipped
to offer such treatment.
