Our skin cancer team specializes in skin cancer treatment of all kinds, especially those most difficult to treat. What makes us different is our unique combination of exceptional physicians, academic resources, all providing individualized care, all focused on getting the most optimal results for our patients.
This collaborative team includes specialists in cancer treatment and plastic and reconstructive surgery who will guide you through every step of your care.
Complete Range of Skin Cancer Treatment Options
Patients usually see our team after having been diagnosed with skin cancer by their primary care physician or dermatologist; however, we will do additional diagnostic tests if needed. A second opinion for skin cancer through our Cancer Second Opinion Program can also be beneficial to ensure a diagnosis is accurate and provide you with all available treatment options.
Treatment options include:
- Surgery to remove the cancer, including Mohs surgery, excision and staged excision.
- Other techniques, such as photodynamic (“blue light”) therapy, chemotherapy and radiation therapy, may also be used.
Helping High Risk Patients Stay Healthy
Some patients may have advanced or large skin cancers, or may have a medical condition that puts them more at risk for developing or redeveloping skin cancer. Special care management and ongoing monitoring helps these patients stay as healthy as possible. This care is especially important for organ transplant patients or other patients with a weakened immune system, and patients with pigmented lesions. Learn more about care for high risk skin cancer patients.
Clinical Trials Offer Access to Newest Therapies
As leading cancer researchers, the physicians of the skin cancer team are often able to give patients the chance to consider additional therapies through clinical trials. View our current skin cancer clinical trials.
Skin Cancer Treatment Locations
We see skin cancer patients at the following locations, including the Mohs Surgery Clinic in the Froedtert Bluemound Clinics. You may receive treatments, such as chemotherapy, at the Clinical Cancer Center on the Froedtert Hospital Campus.
Virtual Visits Are Available
Safe and convenient virtual visits by video let you get the care you need via a mobile device, tablet or computer wherever you are. We’ll gather your medical records for you and get our experts’ input so we can offer treatment options without an in-person visit. To schedule a virtual visit, call 1-866-680-0505.
Cancer and the COVID-19 Vaccine
There is currently no data that suggests current or former cancer patients should avoid getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Cancer can weaken your immune system, so we recommend that most patients get the vaccine as soon as possible.
