The Department of Dermatology is a specialized medical department that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of diseases and conditions related to the skin, hair, and nails. Dermatologists within this department are trained in both medical and surgical approaches to address a wide range of dermatological issues.
Dermatologists diagnose and treat various skin conditions, including acne, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, skin infections, skin cancer, and autoimmune skin disorders. They also provide expertise in cosmetic dermatology, offering treatments for aging skin, scars, and other aesthetic concerns.
In addition to clinical evaluations, dermatologists perform skin biopsies, excisions, and other surgical procedures when necessary. They may also use advanced techniques such as laser therapy, cryotherapy, and phototherapy to treat certain skin conditions.
The Department of Dermatology plays a vital role in promoting skin health, providing preventive care, and managing both common and complex dermatological conditions. Dermatologists work closely with patients to develop personalized treatment plans and educate them on proper skincare practices.
Moreover, the department contributes to research and innovation in dermatology, advancing the field and improving patient outcomes.
