A Team Approach to Skin Cancer Care
Men and women who choose Dermatology & Plastic Surgery Associates for skin cancer treatment appreciate the unique benefits of Dr. Rios and Dr. Lapinski's comprehensive approach.
The board-certified specialists create a customized treatment plan based on each patient's unique needs. In many cases, patients leave our practice having been both cleared of cancerous cells and having their surgical wounds repaired by Dr. Rios. Patients who undergo skin cancer surgery at a dermatology-only practice often leave without this specialized treatment from a plastic surgeon, sometimes with no surgical plan in place and wearing a bandage for a week or more before seeing a plastic surgeon elsewhere.
Instead, our patients treated for skin cancer by Dr. Lapinski have the peace of mind knowing that a board-certified plastic surgeon with Dr. Rios' expertise performs reconstructive surgery to close the wound in a way that will lead to aesthetically pleasing results.
The people who visit Dr. Rios from Naperville and Joliet realize he's a one-of-a-kind plastic surgeon. His first goal is to establish open, honest, meaningful relationships with his patients. There is no doctor-patient hierarchy. He sees his patients as regular people with normal lives who need his help to look and feel their best.
He will meet with you for two consultations, instead of the usual single consultation that is standard practice with most plastic surgeons. You will have all your questions answered, no matter how many you have. He'll give you objective, accurate information, even if it causes you to change your mind about a procedure.
"Thanks so much for all your care, compassion, and concern. I'm sure you've heard just 'how wonderful you are' a millions times but this would be number a million and one — thanks so much words cannot express in this card how I feel."

Dr. Rios is dedicated to providing great outcomes, not just good ones. He accomplishes this goal in many ways, including:
- Making sure you are informed about your procedure, how it's performed, and the results you can expect - and not expect - from surgery. This level of detail makes patients confident that they are going to get the results they want. They approach plastic surgery feeling at ease and excited about the changes that lie ahead.
- Choosing the right approach for you. If you're not a good candidate for a procedure, he will tell you, and he will help guide you to a treatment that will achieve your goals.
- Having a stellar track record where complications are extremely rare. In fact, he takes complications personally.
