Diseases of the skin affect everyone from newborns to adults. Within each specialty, you'll find information resources, along with prevention and lifestyle tools to help you find a physician, get treatment and maintain healthy skin.
Dermatology physicians and surgeons at The University of Kansas Health System diagnose and treat common, rare and complex conditions of the skin, including skin cancer. Other conditions include:
- Dermatitis (eczema)
- Moles and pigmented lesions
Our mission is to provide each patient with outstanding dermatological care. The unique combination of research, education and experience makes this high level of care possible. At each visit, our patients benefit from multiple levels of evaluation and care because they are seen by both faculty and resident physicians.
Skin cancer care
Our dermatologists provide expert care and treatment for melanoma and nonmelanoma skin cancers. Advanced treatments include photodynamic therapy, which we use to treat basal and squamous cell carcinomas.
