Melanoma & Skin Cancer Team

The specialists on the Melanoma and Skin Cancer Team are experts in all aspects of melanoma and skin cancers including treatment, research, prevention, surveillance and survivorship.

We understand cancer treatment can be physically and emotionally challenging and keep that in mind when developing your treatment plan.


The Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute Melanoma and Skin Cancer Program is led by:

Dr. Omar Eton, head of the disease management team and Melanoma and Skin Cancer Center, has more than 30 years’ experience, including time at, Memorial Sloan Kettering, MD Anderson Cancer Center and Boston University Medical Center. He uses his industry experience to serve as principal investigator on clinical research trials for Hartford HealthCare.

Based on your personal needs, your team can include any of the following experts:

  • Radiologists: Doctors trained to take and read pictures of areas inside the body, using X-rays, CT scans, MRIs and other imaging technologies. We use the most advanced technology to develop accurate diagnoses and assess a treatment’s effect on tumors.
  • Pathologists: Physicians trained to investigate the cause of disease by reviewing samples and providing fast, accurate reports that are used to diagnose and determine the best course of care.
  • Surgeons: Surgery is the main treatment option to cure these cancers. Sometimes, lymph nodes are removed at the same time to check for cancer. Surgical oncologists with the Melanoma and Skin Care Center will determine the procedure to remove the cancer and with the best cosmetic results. We have a large team of surgeons who specialize in specific areas of surgery, such as the head and neck, brain, bone, plastics and eye.
  • Medical Oncologists: Physicians with special training in diagnosing and treating cancer using chemotherapy, hormonal therapy and other technologies. Several oncologists provide care exclusively for skin cancer patients. With new effective treatments available, our medical oncologists choose the best care based on your personal situation and your cancer. Multidisciplinary tumor boards for melanoma and skin cancer meet regularly to discuss individual cases from varying perspectives as the team works to construct your individualized treatment plan. We also collaborate directly with Memorial Sloan Kettering colleagues and participate in separate tumor boards.
  • Radiation Therapists. Radiation can treat melanoma that has returned after surgery, either in the skin or lymph nodes, or to help treat distant spread of the disease. It is often used to relieve symptoms caused by melanoma spread, especially to the brain or bones.
  • Clinical Researchers. Cancer Institute experts are committed to ongoing clinical research to develop more effective and less toxic treatments for cancer. Clinical trials can offer the best treatment option for you.
