Skin and Connective Tissue Oncology
Under the guidance of Rogerio I. Neves, M.D., Ph.D., the multidisciplinary Skin and Connective Tissue Oncology Clinic was formed in 2008. The clinic sees adult and pediatric patients every Tuesday and Thursday on the second floor of the Cancer Institute.
The Skin and Connective Tissue Disease Team is represented by dermatologists, surgical and orthopaedic oncologists, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, dermatopathologists and specialized nurses. The team is responsible for the diagnosis, staging, medical and/or surgical treatment, reconstruction, and follow-up for patients with melanoma and other skin cancers.
The multidisciplinary Skin and Connective Tissue Oncology Clinic is part of the Penn State Hershey Melanoma Center led by Gavin P. Robertson, Ph.D. Clinical integration meetings bring together care providers and researchers - enabling patients to receive unique treatment options, such as drugs custom-tailored to the genetic profiles of tumor cells.
