BEFORE SURGERY

The team will review your medical and surgical history, drug allergies, and your medications to ensure a smooth surgical procedure. This is often best accomplished beforehand with a consultation to plan the surgery and post-operative care.

Your skin cancer surgery will be performed in an outpatient surgery unit with local anesthesia. Hospitalization for Mohs surgery is rarely required.

To decrease your risk of infection, please shower morning of surgery and wash surgical site thoroughly. Wear comfortable clothing.

While your surgery will be completed as quickly as possible, you should plan to spend the whole day with us. Most patients are here for 4-6 hours.
