Meet the Skin Cancer Team

Medical Oncologists

Bring the latest melanoma and other skin cancer clinical trials. Some of the trials use the newest immune therapy drugs which have had dramatic effects. Clinical trial treatments can blend well with traditional chemotherapy and with targeted therapy.

Dermatologic Oncologists

Treat skin cancer, including rare skin cancers and inherited skin cancers. They work with oncologists in other multidisciplinary teams to treat cancer-related skin conditions, such as those that occur from chemotherapy and other drugs. Our team also performs biopsies, simple surgical procedures and Mohs surgery.

Surgical Oncologists

Perform complicated skin cancer surgeries. Our team offers different methods of removing skin lesions to diagnose skin cancer and to treat it. We can now remove less tissue (2 cm instead of 4 cm excision) to speed healing while removing the cancer.
