Melanoma

As one of the first skin cancer treatment programs in New York City, we have long been at the forefront of melanoma research and care. We created the ABCDE screening system—now a standard diagnostic tool—to help identify melanoma at an early stage, when treatment is most effective.

Our dermatologists, dermatopathologists, oncologic surgeons, reconstructive plastic surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and pathologists combine their expertise to customize a treatment plan for you.

Our melanoma surgeons specialize in removing the cancer while preserving appearance and function, and our medical oncologists provide the latest targeted treatments, including genetically engineered injectable therapies.
