The best way to combat skin cancer is to have early diagnosis and the earliest possible treatment. There are many effective ways to treat skin cancer, including surgical removal of irregular skin growths, laser techniques, topical skin treatments, and others. Our skin cancer reconstruction surgeons at the OSU Department of Plastic Surgery can not only provide treatment to eradicate cancerous and pre-cancerous areas of skin, but they can also reconstruct the treated areas to reduce the amount of visible skin damage and provide you with the best possible aesthetic appearance after the procedure.
The following sections will link to more detailed descriptions of our skin cancer reconstruction procedures. If you would like more information, or if you would like to schedule a consultation with one of our reconstructive surgeons, please contact the OSU Department of Plastic Surgery today.
