Surgical treatments for melanoma

All patients with melanoma receive surgery as part of their treatment plans, and they may need other therapies as well. At Mayo Clinic, surgical oncologists work within multidisciplinary care teams to develop coordinated care plans tailored to the needs of each patient.

Mayo Clinic surgical experts are at the forefront of melanoma treatment and ensure that all patients receive the right amount of surgery for their diagnoses. They explain that the right care plan starts with expert pathology. Care plans can include preoperative systemic or intralesional treatment and advanced procedures such as sentinel lymph node surgery.
