If you’ve been diagnosed with skin cancer (melanoma), you want to find the best treatment possible. With early detection, melanoma is almost always curable. At California Pacific Medical Center, the Center for Melanoma Research and Treatment offers the most advanced diagnostic and treatment options available today, including new highly effective therapies.
At the Cancer Center, multidisciplinary panels of experts—including radiologists, pathologists, surgeons, oncologists and others—review every case together, in meetings called tumor boards, to combine their collective expertise and craft an approach that best fits each patient. Our acclaimed Cancer Nurse Navigator Program provides you with a single, compassionate and knowledgeable point of contact for every step in your cancer journey, from genetic counseling and testing to financial concerns.
Our experienced and knowledgeable team includes some of the most well-known melanoma specialists in the nation. Mohammed Kashani-Sabet, M.D., the center’s medical director, is a renowned dermatologist who has been treating melanoma and cutaneous lymphomas for more than 20 years. He is also a recipient of the Humanitarian Award from the Melanoma Research Foundation for exemplary patient care, research and scientific leadership.
