Duke Mohs Micrographic Surgery

Type:Specialty Clinic

Duke Mohs Micrographic Surgery, located in Patterson Place in Durham, combines surgery to remove skin cancer with an immediate microscopic examination to ensure no cancerous growth remains. Mohs surgery is an outpatient procedure and is considered the most effective way to remove complex and recurrent cases of skin cancer, often with minimal scarring.

To schedule an appointment, you will need a referral from your doctor and a biopsy report confirming the presence of skin cancer.
