From diagnosis to personalized treatment.

If your primary care physician or dermatologist suspects early symptoms of skin cancer, they'll refer you to a skin specialist. From there, our team reviews your case and works with you to develop a personalized treatment plan. 

Depending on your situation, your skin cancer treatment may include: 

  • Sentinel lymph node biopsy: The removal and biopsy of lymph nodes to see if cancer is present.  
  • Skin grafting: Healthy skin is transplanted from one area of the body to treat the affected area. 
  • Complex closure: The closure of an open wound after skin cancer removal. 
  • Reconstruction:  Surgery is performed to replace missing skin and tissue to restore its appearance and minimize scarring.
  • Radiation therapy, immunotherapy and targeted agents: For advanced cases, one or more of these treatments may be used.
