World-class treatment for skin cancers
The physicians at Tufts Medical Center’s Dermatologic Surgery Clinic are nationally recognized leaders in our field and are highly skilled in the advanced treatment of both common and rare skin cancers. We use the latest diagnostic imaging and other tests to help stage and plan the treatment of basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, malignant melanoma, Merkel cell carcinoma, dysplastic nevi (atypical moles), dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, atypical fibroxanthoma, extramammary Paget’s disease and more.
Led by expert dermatologists, we work in close collaboration with our colleagues in pathology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology and medical and radiation oncology to create the best treatment plan for each of our patients.
Clinical care with cosmetic considerations
Skin cancer treatment can often be puzzling: You want to your doctor to remove the cancer, but you’re worried about scarring. At the Dermatologic Surgery Clinic, you don’t have to choose. Our physicians are specially trained in a range of minimally invasive treatments, including:
- Mohs Surgery
- Photodynamic Therapy
This expertise means that you can rest assured that your health is in good hands. As our surgeons work, we also keep aesthetic concerns in mind. We perform surgical procedures that remove the skin cancer quickly and efficiently, with only local anesthesia, so you can go home the same day. Immediately following the removal, we perform reconstructive surgery that minimizes scarring from the procedure. You can feel confident that you will leave our offices with skin that not only feels healthy, but looks healthy, too.
