Reconstructive surgery is used to remove cancerous growths from the skin and restore the area to as near normal as possible. Depending on the cancer, it can take one or multiple procedures to remove all of the affected area.
Your Skin Cancer Removal Consultation
The highly skilled and attentive team at Warren Clinic Plastic Surgery
, led by Paul A. Berry, M.D., and Kevin P. Kunkel, M.D., will work with your physician to arrange for skin cancer removal.
There are many topics to discuss when considering options for skin cancer removal. Your diagnosis, lifestyle and wishes are all considered. During your initial consultation, your surgeon will discuss:
- What type of skin cancer you have
- What treatment regimen your oncologist has prescribed
- Your general health status and any pre-existing conditions, previous surgeries, drug allergies and medical treatments, including current medications, vitamins and herbal supplements, as well as alcohol and tobacco use
- General and individual risk factors, as well as potential complications
During this time, we encourage you to be completely candid with your surgeon to help ensure the best possible outcome.
Drs. Berry and Kunkel are board certified and members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Why is this important?
