Mohs Micrographic Surgery

The procedure is done in stages.  Taking a small section of cancerous tissue at a time, our Mohs Surgeons will analyze the tissue in between treatments to ensure we get all of the cancer tissue, but not too much healthy tissue, leaving as small of a scar as possible.

Mohs surgery is the most effective treatment for skin cancer.  It is a highly successful basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma treatment.  It also can be very effective for early stage Melanomas.  The benefit of Mohs surgery is that we can more accurately determine the width and the depth of the cancer in real time to minimize the removal of healthy tissue and verify complete cancer removal.

Why Mohs Surgery?

  • Treatment with the highest cure rate for BCC and SCC (up to 99%)
  • Efficient and cost effective
  • Outpatient
  • Takes as little healthy tissue as possible.
  • Leaves the smallest scar possible


While it is primarily used for basal and squamous cell carcinoma, Mohs surgery is also used for dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP), atypical fibroxanthoma (AFX), leiomyosarcoma, extramammary paget’s disease, and Merkel cell carcinoma treatment.

We specialize in skin cancer treatment.  We are one of the few dermatology offices in the Treasure valley that has a fellowship trained Mohs surgeon.  Dr. Perry and Dr. Thomas have performed over 5,000 Mohs surgeries and facial reconstructive repairs.  Dr. Thomas and Dr. Perry will discuss all treatment options for your skin cancer and hope to help patients avoid surgery whenever it is not necessary.

Our expert dermatologists perform Mohs surgery to give you an efficient and cost effective treatment that has the highest cure rate while leaving the smallest scar.  Serving Boise, Nampa, Eagle, Meridian, and more, our dermatology team is dedicated to treating our patients with personalized, compassionate care.
