A TEAM APPROACH TO SKIN CANCER MANAGEMENT

Our acclaimed and experienced skin cancer specialists deliver exceptional care to our patients using a comprehensive team approach.

SCARS Center specialists include dermatologists, dermatopathologists, radiation oncologists, facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons and ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgeons.

 

Together we offer specialized treatment options that range from non-surgical cure such as Photodynamic Therapy, Superficial Radiotherapy, and topical chemotherapy, to Mohs excision in combination with closure and, in many instances, reconstruction by our board and double board certified plastic surgeons. The combination of specialists and treatment options available at SCARS Center provides patients with the convenience and quality of service every person deserves after a skin cancer diagnosis.
