MEDICAL DERMATOLOGY SERVICES
Our Dermatology providers treat patients of all ages for problems of the skin, hair and nails. Our dermatologists provide complete skin checks for skin cancer and pre-cancerous conditions. These skin checks are recommended annually by the American Academy of Dermatology. We provide comprehensive evaluation and individualized treatment appropriate to each patient’s condition. Some of the common skin conditions treated are listed below.
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) uses light and a light-sensitive dye to treat cancer and other diseases. During the procedure, a photosensitized dye or drug is injected into the problem area, which is then exposed to pulses of a narrow-wavelength beam of light. The dye absorbs this light and produces an active form of oxygen that aids in the destruction of the tumor. PDT ensures high precision by targeting only the tissue in and near the treatment area.
