Innovative skin cancer surgery clinicOur skin cancer surgery clinic provides melanoma patients a true multidisciplinary approach to treating their disease. The program helps coordinate diagnosis, staging, clinical and surgical treatment, and reconstruction and follow-up for patients.
In addition to improving patient care coordination, ancillary goals of the program include the implementation of education campaigns for the awareness and prevention of skin cancer, the education of residents and medical students in conjunction with the monthly Melanoma Conference, and the initiation of clinical trials and drug studies. The clinic is currently seeing patients on the second floor of the Cancer Institute. If you, or anyone you know, has been recently, or previously, diagnosed with melanoma and would like to be cared for at the Skin Oncology Center, please call 717-531-8952 to schedule an appointment.
We provide hundreds of free skin cancer screenings a year, and hold a monthly clinic for the homeless in Harrisburg. We also actively support Camp Discovery, a summer camping experience for young people with chronic skin conditions.
The Department of Dermatology is nationally recognized for its excellent academic clinicians. Our faculty is included among the Best Doctors in America national database.
