If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with melanoma, Roswell Park’s melanoma team is here for you. We believe every patient is unique and we approach cancer treatment on an individual and personal basis, treating the whole person, not just the cancer. Our melanoma experts will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that meets your needs.

Roswell Park physicians play leadership roles in developing the National Comprehensive Cancer Center (NCCN) guidelines that detail the best ways of preventing, detecting and treating cancer. The NCCN Guidelines are the most widely-used standards in the United States.

Every RPCI medical, surgical and radiation oncologist on the melanoma team has extensive subspecialty experience in diagnosing and treating melanoma.

The newest and most promising therapies for treating melanoma are only available at select comprehensive cancer centers. Roswell Park is one of only three National Cancer Institute-designated centers in New York State.

Pioneering Clinical Trials

Roswell Park strives to find better ways to treat melanoma through clinical trials, many of which have been pioneered and launched by our own translational research team.
