At the Kimberly and Eric J. Waldman Melanoma and Skin Cancer Center, we believe collaboration is key to the fight against this serious form of skin cancer. We are home to not only a team of world-class specialists who are highly skilled in treating melanoma, but also a team of talented researchers who are leading the field in developing tomorrow’s therapies. At the core of our efforts is our commitment to our patients, who receive a combination of science-backed care and personalized attention, designed to help them achieve the best possible health.
As a hub for departments and entities across the Mount Sinai Health System, including the Tisch Cancer Institute and the Department of Pathology, the Waldman Center is uniquely positioned to provide comprehensive, coordinated services to our patients. Committed to early detection and prevention, we offer the most advanced diagnostics and leading-edge therapies available anywhere. Our specialists are skilled in providing the full range of non-surgical and surgical therapies for melanoma.
Our doctors and researchers work hand-in-hand, exchanging clinical insights and laboratory findings to design the best treatment for each patient—and to advance the field of melanoma care for everyone. Building on our Department of Dermatology’s successful track record of bringing new drugs to approval, our team of top researchers and pathologists works daily to break new ground in areas such as immunotherapy, biologic therapies, development of early diagnostic tools, and identification of prognostic markers.
From the moment you walk through our doors, you’ll be guided by a patient navigator, who will personally take you through any appointments, testing, and procedures. The doctors, nurses, and team members you meet along the way will take the time to address your questions, explain your treatment options, and include your family in your care.
Made possible through the generosity of the Waldman Family, The Kimberly and Eric J. Waldman Melanoma and Skin Cancer Center is dedicated to putting the most advanced treatments and newest research to work for each of our patients.
