Plastic Surgery for Skin Cancer & Tumors
At the Parker Center in Paramus, New Jersey
Skin cancer is one of the most prevalent cancers affecting men and women in New Jersey – one in six of us will develop some form of skin cancer in our lifetime. If you’ve been diagnosed with skin cancer or have a pre-cancerous lesion, we invite you to contact Dr. Parker for a consultation to discuss your options for tumor removal, and if needed, reconstructive surgery after treatment.
What type of skin cancer surgery does Dr. Parker perform?
Dr. Parker is board certified in plastic surgery and has over 25 years of surgical experience. He will work closely with your dermatologist to determine the best course of treatment. He can remove many types of precancerous and cancerous lesions himself in our fully accredited, on-site surgical center. When more extensive surgery is performed by another specialist, Dr. Parker will often perform the reconstructive procedure to help restore a natural appearance to the treated area.

“My experience was amazing. I had a large cyst removed and was concerned about scarring. Dr. Parker’s work left a barely noticeable line due to the fact that he took the extra time before surgery to check my neck from all angles with me sitting as well as laying down so he could be sure his work would blend in. I did not have any discomfort at all. Dr. Parker and his staff are truly caring and go the extra mile to make sure patients are comfortable and clear about follow-up care. My internist was also impressed during a routine visit shortly after Dr. Parker performed the procedure.”—Skin Cancer Patient
