RE: [Histonet] MOHS

Linda's explanation is brief rather than simplistic:-)
Two common misconceptions are:
1	MOHS is an acronym, and 
2	That it is Moh's (it is Mohs').

Mohs is named after Dr. Mohs here at the University of Wisconsin  who developed the technique.  It involves taking increasingly deeper shave sections off skin cancer lesions and doing frozen sections on each until a "clear" section is obtained.  This is a simplistic explanation but I think you get the idea.

I don't want to seem stupid, but what exactly is MOHS, or should I ask, what does it stand for?  I am not familiar with this, but hopefully, once explained I will be.
