The University of Minnesota Physicians skin cancer care team can help with any type of skin cancer. We offer a comprehensive program in screening, diagnosis, treatment, after-treatment support and ongoing follow-up. You’ll have access to both conventional and investigational treatment strategies. Our team includes general dermatologists, dermatologic surgeons, dermatopathologists, oncologists, and general, plastic, and head and neck surgeons.
In addition to routine excisional surgery to remove cancers, the UMPhysicians skin cancer team offers a unique procedure called Mohs surgery. Performed in an outpatient setting, Mohs surgery is used to treat aggressive cancer and cancer in cosmetically sensitive areas, such as the face. Because the technique requires highly specialized training, specialized office personnel and a team effort, few medical centers in the country are equipped to offer this treatment.
