Of the many skin cancer treatments available, Mohs micrographic surgery is the most precise, with the highest cure rate and least cosmetic damage. It is among the most sophisticated and complex skin surgeries, requiring extensive training and a high skill level. Dr. Ostad is among New York’s top Mohs surgeons, known for exceptional results and artisan aesthetic outcomes. He was fellowship-trained at UCLA in Mohs micrographic surgery and has considerable experience with skin cancer diagnosis and treatment.

What is Mohs?

In this procedure, cancerous cells are removed one layer at a time. As each layer is removed, it’s tested and the cancerous portion is mapped, providing a guide for removal of the next layer. The process continues until the entire tumor is removed, including microscopic cancer roots. The wound is then repaired for an optimal aesthetic outcome.

Mohs surgery is an outpatient procedure, performed under local anesthetic. The procedure is completed here in our comfortable office, which is an AAAASF (American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities) certified surgical facility.
