NEBRASKA MELANOMA CENTER ® currently has its home office and "place of service" in North Platte. However, to provide convenient access for Nebraskans to NEBRASKA MELANOMA CENTER ® services, it is the intention of NEBRASKA MELANOMA CENTER ® to offer "outreach" presence on-site or through NEBRASKA MELANOMA CENTER ®'s affiliation with TELANOMA ®, to many Nebraska communities in the Pathology Services, P.C. network and the rest of the World.


NEBRASKA MELANOMA CENTER ® only partners and collaborates with institutions and other caregivers who are "additive" to the quality, safety and efficacy of your evaluation, management and treatment. Skin cancer does not care where it occurs, but we do!
