Preparing for Mohs Surgery


What do I need to do to prepare for Mohs surgery?

  • Plan to spend 2-3 hours, or longer, in our office for your surgery.
  • Bring a book, newspaper, laptop computer or something else to help pass the time.
    Many patients bring a small snack.
  • Take all of your normal medications, including Aspirin, Coumadin and/or Plavix unless specifically instructed not to do so by our office.
  • Dress comfortably in loose clothing. Bring a sweater in case you get cold.
  • You may need someone to pick you up from our office when the procedure is completed.
