The Melanoma Program at St. Joseph Hospital offers Orange County residents comprehensive, unparalleled expertise in melanoma detection, treatment and follow-up care. The multidisciplinary healthcare team consists of highly skilled oncology and plastic surgeons, radiation therapists, medical oncologists, pathologists, nursing and research staff. Working collaboratively, these highly skilled clinicians ensure that our patients receive innovative and evidence-based care designed to diminish suffering and save lives.
While clinical expertise makes the Melanoma Program one of the most advanced in the region, the program’s patient and family-centered care offers the hope, dignity and compassion patients have come to expect from St. Joseph Hospital. The program's Nurse Navigator provides personalized education, guidance and emotional support to all patients. Support and education groups are offered and most patients feel at ease knowing they have a resource available to them every step of the way during treatment and follow up.
