This article describes a technique in the dermatology field known as Mohs surgery. The procedure was created by a medical student, Frederic Mohs, back in the 1930’s, yet is still considered a cutting edge treatment for removal of skin cancers. Mohs surgery highlights the interesting combination of skills from various medical fields that a dermatologist will use to result in a highly effective method of tumor excision while minimizing the extent of tissue removal.
