Our Approach to Care
A Multidisciplinary Team Committed to Each Individual Patient
At the Johns Hopkins Melanoma/Skin Cancer Program, we practice multi-disciplinary care for every single patient. This means that the entire care team — dermatologists, surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists and pathologists— works together closely to make an accurate diagnosis and develop an individualized treatment plan.
Team members meet together weekly to review your case: test results, treatment plans, progress, next steps. This team approach allows for all of those caring for you across disciplines to coordinate their expertise and offer the best care options for you moving forward. We believe that collaborative care will help you make the right informed decisions.
You can feel confident knowing that your care team is in sync.
Access to the Most Advanced Treatments, Techniques and Clinical Trials
As some of the country’s leading experts in the diagnosis and treatment of common as well as rare and often aggressive forms of skin cancer, we are eager to share that knowledge.
Our clinicians are renowned cancer researchers actively working to develop new and better ways to fight the disease. With insights into newly available and on-the-horizon treatments, our team can offer suggestions on the suitability of clinical trial opportunities that may hold promise for many patients.
