What Is Mohs Surgery?
Mohs surgery stands out for its minimal impact on healthy tissues and the thorough analysis of removed layers, making it the most successful cancer treatment. Additional benefits include:
- Complete cancer removal during surgery.
- Eliminating the risk of cancer recurrence.
- Minimizing the loss of healthy tissue.
- Optimizing functional and aesthetic outcomes.
- Repairing the affected site the same day as skin cancer removal.
Will My Insurance Cover Mohs Surgery?
Most insurance plans cover Mohs surgery costs and associated wound repair treatments. Copayments, deductibles, or coinsurance not covered by your health plan are your responsibility. Although the initial procedure may be costlier due to skilled personnel and advanced technology, the high success rate often requires only a single surgery, saving potential multiple surgery expenses associated with other methods. A single fee for Mohs surgery consolidates costs compared to separate fees for additional surgeries with alternative methods. Our team is ready to address any questions regarding insurance or financing, ensuring your peace of mind during this journey.
What to Expect Before Surgery
Unless Dr. Feinstein directs otherwise, continue your regular medications and supplements. On the surgery day, wear loose, comfortable clothing that provides easy access to the treated area. Expect a two to five-hour procedure, with breakfast or lunch provided based on your appointment time. Additionally, consider arranging for someone to drive you home after the proced

Mohs Surgery Transformations
On your Mohs procedure day, our patient care team welcomes you to a private treatment area. They will aid in taking pictures of the treatment site, asking pre-op questions, and preparing you for local anesthesia. Once comfortable, Dr. Feinstein meticulously removes cancerous skin layer by layer. After completion, your wound site is fully bandaged and dressed.
You’ll spend some time in the lobby while the tissue undergoes microscopic examination. If cancer cells persist, the process repeats until complete removal. Your doctor will then discuss the best way to close the wound, considering factors like appearance, function, and aesthetics.
Recovery After Mohs Surgery
Post-surgery, care for your wound site involves regularly changing bandages. One of our medical assistants will provide post-operative care instructions, and our team is accessible by phone for any questions.
