Customized care for the most common cancer

Our skin physicians and fellowship-trained oncologists are experts at removing primary tumors anywhere on your skin. They also use a technique called sentinel lymph node biopsy to see if and where a cancer has spread to develop a treatment plan just for you.

Multidisciplinary team

Our team has multiple specialists, including surgical, medical, and radiation oncologists, dermatologists, and dermatopathologists.

All skin cancers

We treat every skin cancer, from the most dangerous melanoma to non-melanoma cancers, which are more common.

Reconstructive surgery

Plastic surgeons are a vital part of our care service. They work closely with your oncologist to restore appearance and function.

We treat all the main types of skin cancers.

  • Basal cell carcinoma. This accounts for most skin cancers and can be found anywhere on the skin, especially the head and neck. It usually grows slowly and rarely spreads to other parts of the body.
  • Squamous cell carcinoma. This represents about 20 percent of skin cancers and is mainly caused by sun exposure so that it may be diagnosed in many skin regions. 
  • Merkel cell cancer. It is a highly aggressive, rare cancer that starts in hormone-producing cells beneath the skin and hair follicles. It is usually found in the head and neck region. 
  • Melanoma. Melanoma is the most dangerous form of skin cancer, as it can spread to other parts of the body. It accounts for about 1 percent of all skin cancers diagnosed in the United States, but it causes most of the deaths from skin cancer.

Experienced in Mohs surgery

Our specialty-trained dermatologists have years of experience performing Mohs surgery, a dedicated treatment for certain types of skin cancer. It involves cutting away thin layers of skin at a time, looking closely for signs of cancer. The process keeps going until there are no signs of cancer and allows us to be sure that it has disappeared. It also reduces the need for other treatments or more surgery.
