While the vast majority of skin cancers can be managed by a single practitioner in the outpatient setting, there is a subset of complex skin cancers that benefit from multidisciplinary care. At our institution, we have built strong collegial relationships with allied specialties such as surgical oncology, otolaryngology-head and neck surgery, plastic surgery, facial plastic surgery, and oculoplastic surgery. It is common for patients with high-risk or complex tumors to be seen pre-operatively by several allied specialties. This allows for care coordination and more seamless care in addition to fostering skin cancer expertise within our collaborators in allied specialties.
