SKIN CANCER TREATMENT
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer. Lesions may appear as non-healing sores or bumps on the face or neck. Dr. Sidle works closely with noted dermatologists at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and around Chicago in the treatment and repair of skin cancers of the face and neck as well as aesthetic facial enhancement. Large defects may be left in the face after skin cancer removal. Simple closure of these defects may lead to disfiguring distortion of the normal facial features as well as potential functional problems. Dr. Sidle’s expertise in a number of facial reconstructive techniques, such as grafts and flaps obtained from the patient’s own body, allows him to treat these defects in a manner which maximizes the cosmetic and functional outcome.
Dr. Sidle understands that the treatment of skin cancer is a stressful event. His goal is to do everything he can to make the patient more comfortable with the process of facial restoration. Indeed, we strive to see and treat patients as soon as possible after their dermatologic surgery.
Experience Matters. As a board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon at Northwestern with an expertise in the face and neck, Dr. Sidle can provide you with an individualized plan to achieve your goals of a more youthful face. Call our office for a one-on-one consultation.
