Skin Cancer team at Wilmot

The Wilmot Cancer Center provides the most extensive skin cancer team in the region.

For many types of skin cancer, you will only need to see one of our dermatologists. But for more serious or rare types of skin cancer, you will require the care of a multidisciplinary team. That team may include doctors from the following specialties:

Dermatologist is a doctor who specializes in disorders of the skin, including all types of skin cancer. Your dermatologist may treat your skin cancer or may help in assembling the team of doctors you need for your care.

Dermatopathologist is a specialist in examining tissue samples from the skin to diagnose skin cancer and other dermatologic conditions.

Facial plastic surgeon is a surgeon who specializes in reconstruction of the face, including the nose, lips and ears.

Medical oncologist is a doctor who specializes in diagnosing cancer and then treating it with chemotherapy.

Mohs surgeon is a specialist in a surgical technique for removing skin cancers layer by layer, helping minimize damage to healthy skin while ensuring complete removal of the cancer.

Ocular plastic surgeon is a specialist in plastic surgery on the eyelids and the area surrounding the eyes.

Otolaryngologist is a specialist in disorders of the ear, nose and throat.

Radiation oncologists treat skin cancer with radiation, most often in patients where surgery is not an option.
