The department of Surgical Oncology provides specialised care for patients with melanoma and all types of skin cancer.
Surgeons within the department hold appointments at St Vincent's Public and Private Hospitals. All the members of the department have undergone advanced post-fellowship training in Surgical Oncology at prestigious overseas centres.
We provide care for patients with localized and metastatic disease, and perform the most modern surgical techniques.
Consultations for both public and private patients are provided in our offices on level 7 of St Vincent's Clinic.
Patients with urgent problems can be seen at short notice, often on the day of referral.
Surgeons in the department work closely with specialists in Dermatology, Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Cancer Genetics with the St Vincent's campus to provide truly multidisciplinary care for patients with cancer.
Our aim is to provide excellent cancer care, from early diagnosis to ongoing management and follow up. All patients are presented at our regular multidisciplinary tumour group meetings held at our Kinghorn Cancer Centre to ensure that all their care is fully coordinated with the one centre of excellence.
