Melanoma Surgery

Skincare below the surface.

Melanoma is one of the most common forms of skin cancer, and it’s also considered to be the most dangerous. That’s why melanoma surgery is often recommended as part of a comprehensive skin cancer treatment plan. Skin cancer surgeons typically recommend removing the cancerous cells from the skin, as well as one or more follow-up treatments (e.g., radiation therapy) to destroy any residual cells.

At Florida Medical Clinic, we offer several options for melanoma surgery, including:

  • Simple Excisions — For small, localized melanomas
  • Wide Excisions — For melanomas that were found to have additional cancer cells in the margin of the simple initial excision, indicating the need for a follow-up procedure. Wide excisions may also be used for larger melanomas that require the removal of a substantial amount of tissue
  • Lymph Node Dissections — This procedure is used to check the nearby lymph nodes for the presence of a potential secondary malignant growth
  • Mohs Microsurgeries — For very small, early-stage melanomas that have developed on cosmetically sensitive areas, such as the eyelids or the nose

When you turn to Florida Medical Clinic for melanoma surgery, you’ll be working with a highly experienced skin cancer surgeon, a skilled team of oncologists, dermatologists and supportive care providers who take a collaborative approach to your treatment. We also have a team of plastic and cosmetic surgeons to improve aesthetic outcomes when large portions of skin are removed during skin cancer treatment.

If you’ve been diagnosed with skin cancer or suspect that you might have melanoma, please reach out to us to discuss your options with one of our experienced surgical professionals.
