Skin Cancer (Treatment and Reconstruction) Chicago

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer, affecting approximately 1 in 5 Americans throughout their lifetime. There are three relatively common types of skin cancer: Basal Cell Carcinoma, Squamous Cell Carcinoma and Melanoma. Fortunately, the first two generally are rarely life-threatening and can be treated very effectively with prompt intervention. Malignant Melanoma should be treated aggressively and its treatment can be very successful in the hands of experienced specialists.

Dr. Turowski is specialist in the management of skin cancer. Although he is often removing the lesions themselves employing fresh frozen pathology reports, in some cases he teams up with MOHS dermatologic surgeons in managing lesions involving vital anatomical structures like the nose, eyelids, ears and scalp. This ensures the best cure rates and least amount of tissue needed to be removed. Reconstruction after such cases is a very exacting and specialized art that our facial plastic surgery specialist is uniquely experienced with, leading to a significant improvement in the quality of life for patients suffering from skin cancer.
