Mohs Micrographic Surgery provides a modest survival advantage for melanoma patients
from Dermatology Advisor
Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) represents an alternative approach to traditional wide margin excision (WME) in select patients with early-stage invasive melanoma without compromising patient survival, according to research published in JAMA Dermatology. Although current guidelines for treatment of melanoma recommend surgery with WME, use of MMS has increased in recent years as an alternative to WME, as it allows for less tissue removal during excision.
