The skin experts at University Health System diagnose and treat patients of all ages with disorders of the skin, nails and hair. The skin is your body’s largest organ and protects you in important ways. Our doctors have the expertise to help keep your skin healthy so you can feel and look your best.

Our Skin Experts Keep You Healthy

On a daily basis, we treat psoriasis, eczema, acne, skin cancer and many other skin conditions. We help patients with common and rare skin diseases. Many of our patients come to see us for relief from various types of rashes and itchy skin conditions.

Sometimes the smallest change in the appearance of your skin can be a signal that something is wrong. More Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer each year than all the other cancers combined. Our skin specialists help to identify, evaluate and treat all forms of skin cancer.

As with any cancer, early detection is key. We identify and treat basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and melanoma.

Our doctors collaborate with your primary care doctor and other specialists to give you the most comprehensive care possible. If you have a serious skin condition, we make sure you get the treatment you need.

Treatment

Our doctors have the expertise to provide the safest, most effective treatment for your skin condition. Treatments include:

Medication

Many skin conditions are treated with oral, topical and injectable medications. Our doctors will guide you to the best medication for your condition.

Surgery

Our doctors are trained to cut out skin cancers, cysts and lipomas during an office visit.

Cryosurgery

We treat precancerous growths, sunspots and other skin conditions with cryosurgery. This treatment method is also known as cryotherapy. Our doctors apply cold liquid nitrogen to destroy abnormal tissue. This results in little to no scarring. Complete healing usually takes 7 to 14 days.

Allergy Testing

We provide patch testing for our patients who come in with allergic reactions, looking for answers. We conduct the test for those who have a persistent rash, aggravated dermatitis or some other type of allergic reaction.

Patch testing helps to determine which substances (fragrances, dyes, preservatives, etc.) may be causing the contact dermatitis rash. Three patches are placed on the patient’s back to see if they have a reaction over the coming days. Three appointments are needed over one week. We help many of our patients figure out the cause of their allergic reaction so they can avoid irritants and ease their symptoms.
