The Melanoma Management Team is dedicated to the comprehensive management of patients with the deadliest form of skin cancer, melanoma. Stony Brook is the major referral center for patients with melanoma in Suffolk County, and skin cancer is one of the top five malignancies treated at the Medical Center.
The Melanoma Team focuses not only on complete individualized care for each patient with melanoma, but also on community education and research. The team holds an annual free skin screening at the Cancer Center and visits local high school health education classes. Team members also participate in the Hospital’s Health Expo.
