As a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Batniji is an expert at the surgical treatment of facial skin cancers .
Skin cancer begins in the epidermis, which is made up of three kinds of cells:
• Squamous cells: Thin, flat cells that form the top layer of the epidermis.
• Basal cells: Round cells under the squamous cells.
• Melanocytes: Cells that make melanin and are found in the lower part of the epidermis. Melanin is the pigment that gives skin its natural colour. When skin is exposed to the sun, melanocytes make more pigment and cause the skin to darken.
Dr. Batniji will discuss the recommendations from the Tumor Board and guide you through the treatment plan.
