After the skin cancer has been completely removed, a decision is made on the best method for treating the wound created by the surgery. These methods include letting the wound heal by itself, closing the wound in a side-to-side fashion with stitches, or closing the wound with a skin flap or graft. The best method is determined on an individual basis. All wound repairs are performed immediately while the site is still anesthetized. All of our Mohs surgeons have undergone extensive specialized reconstructive surgery training for repairing the wound. On a rare occurrence, other surgical specialists may be utilized for their unique skills if warranted.
