Why is Mohs Micrographic Surgery an excellent option for treatment of skin cancer?

The cancer is removed microscopically with no unnecessary removal of healthy, normal tissue. In other words, surgery is minimized and results in the smallest defect possible. Cure rates are unprecedented; 95% for recurrent basal cell carcinoma and 99% for primary basal cell carcinoma. The cancer is precisely removed, and scarring is minimized.
