Skin cancer: Our approach to care

Although skin cancer is common, it can be dangerous. In particular, melanoma is an aggressive form of cancer that can spread quickly. We provide cutting-edge care that’s as effective as it is compassionate. We offer:

  • Minimally invasive treatment: We use minimally invasive treatments to target the cancer and help you recover faster.
  • Advanced diagnostic technologies: Our team uses pioneering techniques like sentinel lymph node mapping to treat more aggressive types of skin cancer, like melanoma. We remove the lymph node closest to the melanoma to determine the cancer’s stage and plan an effective treatment.
  • Collaborative team: Our skilled surgeons and pathologists interact closely with our growing dermatology staff. Our diverse, experienced team works as a group to treat you. This well-integrated approach ensures you receive careful and comprehensive treatment.
  • Patient-centered care: A Navigation Team is available to coordinate logistics, answer questions about symptoms and treatment, and offer support to you and your family. Our robust support services, including support groups, electronic medical records, palliative care, and cancer genetics, provide care for the whole person.
