      hello, I am an oncology nurse that specializes in gyne cancers. Although Mohs is widely used with Pagets and other skin associated cancers, It is not that often a staple in vulvectomies. There are a few places where it is done andI think as time goes on it will become a more widely used practice but I have worked with a gynecologic surgeon and I have watched many a surgery and I have not seen it used on Vulvectomies and I was at a nationally known Cancer Hospital. I hope this helps to answer your question, Carm RN.
