Dr. Mamelak Presents Sanova Skin Cancer Research At National Meeting
Sanova dermatologist Dr. Adam Mamelak presented new data at the American College of Mohs Surgery Meeting this past week in Chicago. In working with Dr. Joseph Doumit and researchers at the University of Ottawa in Canada, Dr. Mamelak showed that the rate of skin cancer in the Canadian province of Ontario increased 36% between 2003 and 2009. Think health care costs are only out of control in the U.S.? The cost of treating these skin cancers was 76% greater in 2009 than 2003! This research will directly help physicians and healthcare groups better allocate resources and but an end to the skin cancer epidemic in North America.
