DERMATOLOGY & CUTANEOUS SURGERY
Of all of our body’s organs, our skin is the largest and most versatile. Adults carry some 8 pounds and 22 square feet of it. Skin acts as a waterproof, insulating shield, guarding our body against extremes of temperature, damaging sunlight, and harmful chemicals. It also exudes antibacterial substances that prevent infection, and manufactures vitamin D for converting calcium into healthy bones.
It’s no surprise, then, that our largest organ can also be affected by a wide variety of conditions—from acne and aging to eczema, psoriasis and many more. And here in South Florida, where the sun is especially strong and people are outdoors all year long, skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma and melanoma are increasingly common, even in children.
University of Miami Hospital’s Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery team offers care for every type of dermatologic need and condition. Our highly skilled physicians are recognized leaders in their field, and are expert at treating all types of skin problems, from cosmetic concerns to severe and life-threatening conditions.
Dermatology patients at University of Miami Hospital benefit from state-of-the-art technology and the latest medical advances developed at the Miller School of Medicine.
