Abstract

Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) is a unique technique that can offer the highest cure rates and maximum tissue conservation in the management of specific primary and recurrent skin cancers. However, there are many areas of controversy that surround MMS, including appropriate indications for its use, technical quandaries, and outcomes. Recent efforts in these areas need to be assessed to identify research gaps in MMS to help fuel further work. The usefulness of MMS and its methods for delivery need more stringent, evidence-based, rigorous study.
