Treatments & Services

The Johns Hopkins Melanoma/Skin Cancer Program sees approximately 400 new patients in its clinics annually, and treats between 250 and 300 cases of newly diagnosed melanoma per year. With a long history of pivotal research and clinical innovations, Johns Hopkins faculty have led clinical trials to set the standards for surgery for early-stage melanomas and systemic therapies for advanced melanomas and other skin cancers. Our faculty members have demonstrated expertise in treating all stages of melanoma among children, teenagers and adults. They include specialists in dermatology and dermatologic surgery, surgical oncology, plastic and reconstructive surgery, head and neck surgery, radiation oncology, and medical oncology. In addition to providing the highest standards of multidisciplinary care, these specialists are leading clinical trials to develop more effective treatments for patients with common as well as rare subtypes of melanoma and other skin cancers.
