A New York board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Judith Hellman specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of skin cancers and melanoma. Renown for her skill and outstanding patient-centered care, Dr. Hellman has been bringing her diagnostic and therapeutic expertise to patients with skin cancer and other dermatological disorders for over two decades.
Dr. Hellman understands that a skin cancer diagnosis can produce a great deal of anxiety—particularly in the case of melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer. When detected early, the cure rate for skin cancer can be high; because of this, Dr. Hellman encourages her patients to have regular skin examinations and seek immediate treatment if cancer is identified. Dr. Hellman uses the most advanced and effective surgical techniques to remove cancerous skin lesions, taking great care to minimize the possibility of post-procedure scarring.
Dr. Hellman’s first priority is a clean and complete excision in order to prevent the advancement of the cancer. Her second priority is to address any cosmetic concerns that might arise after treatment. If the removal of cancerous tissue requires extensive work, Dr. Hellman often performs aesthetic procedures to help a patient recover psychologically. An expert in dermatological surgery, laser surgery and anti-aging skin treatments, Dr. Hellman offers a range of treatments that can improve the appearance of the excision site.
An accomplished musician, Dr. Hellman received her B.A. Magna Cum Laude from Boston’s Berklee College of Music. She received her MD from Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City and completed an internship in internal medicine at New York’s Beth Israel Medical Center. As a dermatology resident at SUNY Stony Brook, she was selected to serve as chief resident. She received specialized training in the surgical treatment of skin cancers and in the use of lasers for various skin conditions at CosmediCenter in Long Island.
Currently an associate professor in the Department of Dermatology at Mt. Sinai Medical Center, Dr. Hellman is also a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, American Society for Laser Surgery and Medicine, and the Dermatologic Society of Greater New York.
