Today, there are nearly one million people living with melanoma in the U.S, and more than 160,000 Americans are expected to be diagnosed with melanoma in one year.
The good news is that with early, accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment, melanoma is highly treatable. When you choose the Multidisciplinary Melanoma Team at Brown Cancer Center, you will be receiving the most advanced surgical and medical therapies for patients at all stages of this disease.
Our physicians are all professors at the University of Louisville School of Medicine with unique clinical expertise with melanoma and other skin cancers. Our specialists are not only the leading experts in the region but are internationally recognized for their contributions to melanoma research and clinical care. We are at the forefront of testing new drugs to activate your immune system against incurable cancers, and we’ve developed immunotherapies that are less toxic and save more lives than standard chemotherapies. We were an early adopter of immunotherapies in the mid-2000s for melanoma, and we’re now a top site for immunotherapy trials.
Brown Cancer Center provides the highest level of clinical cancer care in the region, access to the latest cancer research and the benefits of a team-focused, multidisciplinary approach.
