- Melanoma is one of the deadliest cancers in the US. Prevention and early detection of melanoma should be a focus of every dermatology practice. We are excited to be the first practice in USA to offer Nevisense to our patients. This device will allow us to focus on lesions that are abnormal and detect these at the earliest stage, potentially saving lives of our patients. It will also allow us to carefully monitor less atypical lesions, decreasing unnecessary biopsies and scarring. We look forward to using Nevisense, along with careful physical examination, dermascopy and photography, to offer the most comprehensive melanoma and dysplastic nevus detection approach available, says Gary Goldenberg, MD.

Every day we see young patients with atypical moles or even melanoma in our office. NeviSense will allow us to detect abnormal lesions early, potentially saving lives of our patients. For many, it will also decrease the need for unnecessary biopsies of less abnormal lesions, saving the patients from unneeded scarring.
