Pioneered in the 1930s in the USA by Dr Frederic Mohs (1910–2002), Mohs micrographic surgery is a highly effective means of treating certain types of primary skin cancer, most commonly basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). These occur most frequently on the head and neck, with clinically invisible microscopic extensions, or situated on critical anatomical
structures such as the nose, eyelid, lip or ear. It is vital to remove all the tumour to prevent recurrence, yet also desirable to minimise loss of normal skin tissue to avoid cosmetically unsightly
wounds. The Thermo Scientific Cryostar cryostat can help to optimise workflow and throughput in the modern Mohs clinic, enabling more patients to be seen per clinic session.
