Although Mohs Surgery is well accepted for treatment of skin cancers by dermatologists and most surgical subspecialties, there are issues for which there is a divergence of opinion. This session will explore in depth some of these controversies in Mohs Surgery such as appropriate and inappropriate use, whether to use special stains (including MART-1 and toluidine blue), and reconstructive problems, e.g. whether cartilage grafts are really necessary. Also to be discussed will be the usefulness and desirability of fellowship training.
