About ESMS and how to become a member

About ESMS

The European Society for Micrographic Surgery is a group of European-based dermatologists dedicated to setting and maintaining professional standards in micrographic surgery for skin cancer, particularly the Mohs technique. There are various forms of micrographic surgery but Mohs surgery is proven to be the most effective and advanced treatment for skin cancer today. It offers the highest potential for cure - even if the skin cancer has previously been treated by another method.

The ESMS is a Sister Society of the EADV, its scientific programme has been incorporated at the EADV-meetings.

Today the ESMS has members from over 25 European Countries and beyond.
