Leading MOHS & Dermatology Clinics
Mohs surgery is a precise surgical technique used to treat skin cancer. During Mohs surgery, thin layers of cancer-containing skin are progressively removed and examined until only cancer-free tissue remains. According to the American College of Mohs Surgery
(ACMS), the cure rate exceeds 99 percent for new skin cancers and 95 percent for recurrent skin cancers. It has the lowest recurrence rates, highest cure rates and best cosmetic results of any skin cancer treatment.

Mohs micrographic surgery involves removing a skin cancer one layer at a time and examining these layers under a microscope immediately after they are removed. This procedure allows for a close examination of each layer of skin to detect cancer cells. It also allows a minimal amount of tissue to be removed while making sure that all the cancer cells are removed.
A local anesthetic is injected into the skin before the surgery. The doctor then begins to remove the skin cancer and a small amount of healthy tissue, one layer of skin at a time. Each tissue layer is prepared and examined under the microscope for cancer cells. Surgery is complete when no more cancer cells are detected.
Besides Mohs surgery they also treat a whole spectrum of Dermatological problems such as skin cancer, pre-cancer spots or atypical moles with excision or photo-dynamic therapy.
In their clinics in Dordrecht and Hoorn the medical staff are also specialized in diagnosis and treatment of varicose veins. Patients receive a duplex-examination (ultrasound of the veins) and the best treatment option is chosen for patients such: endovascular laser, sclerocompression therapy or phlebectomy (Müller operation).
The focus of this superb clinical group is to offer patients a highly personalised and fully inclusive service including diagnosis, treatment and follow up.
