This chapter describes updates in the surgical management of melanoma including primary melanoma, regional melanoma, and distant metastatic disease. Surgical management is discussed in the context of a multidisciplinary approach. Specifically, surgical therapy needs to be considered in the context of new effective systemic therapy agents for melanoma. With the approval of multiple new treatment strategies for melanoma, the surgical approach has changed dramatically in the last 10 years. Here we review the rationale for appropriate contemporary surgical approaches to melanoma including minimizing morbidity from surgery and introduction of neoadjuvant therapy approaches.
