Basal & Squamous Cell Skin Cancers in Adults

We established one of the first treatment programs in the New York City area for basal and squamous cell cancers, also called nonmelanoma skin cancers. Our dermatologists’ expertise in identifying and removing precancerous growths helps prevent many of these skin cancers from developing. When cancer is diagnosed, our medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, and radiation oncologists work together to provide the most effective treatment. Our reconstructive surgeons and rehabilitation doctors may also play an important role in your care.
