Exactly as the name implies, surgical dermatology is the area of practice that pertains to the use of surgery for the treatment of skin conditions. Simply put, if it involves anesthesia or a knife, it’s surgical dermatology. But don’t be alarmed–the field has advanced by leaps and bounds, and now most procedures are only minimally invasive and can be done on-site, under local anesthesia and with minimal discomfort.
Although surgery may be done for a cosmetic purpose — think earlobe repair — the majority of procedures are for medical reasons, like removing cancerous skin lesions.
As a Board-certified dermatologist and dermatopathologist, Dr. Rodney is uniquely equipped to treat the needs of your skin–regardless of your age or ethnicity.
