Dermatologic Surgery and more...

The University Dermatology Group offers a full spectrum of dermatological services to include some highly specialized subspecialties of dermatology . Traditional cryotherapy, photodynamic therapy, microscopy, excisional surgeries , and the ability to do immediate on-site pathological evaluation for suspicious growths are all performed routinely.

Specialized training has enabled our facility to do procedures such as Mohs micrographic surgery for skin cancers, extensive patch testing for allergic reactions of the skin, and narrow-band ultraviolet laser therapy for chronic conditions such as psoriasis and vitiligo. Medical care for all ages is available at University Dermatology Group. Routine and complex pediatric, adult, and geriatric care to include patients in local nursing homes is available. With many therapeutic options, it is our goal to help educate and guide you as to which traditional or specialized treatment or procedure best fits your needs.

Affiliations and privileges with hospitals from southeast to north county San Diego such as Scripps Mercy Hospital, Sharp Chula Vista Hosptial, Sharp Memorial Hospital, Sharp Coronado Hospital, Sharp Grossmont Hosptial and Alvarado Hospital allow us access and continuity of care in the event of a hospitalization or a dermatological condition that arises during a hospital stay.

The practitioners and staff at the University Dermatology Group pride themselves in giving back to the community of San Diego. Through frequent seminars at local hospitals, recreation centers, public schools, and health fairs, we have been able to educate our patients and the community. Through the coordinated efforts of Project Access, we have additionally been able to reach out to individual patients in need of but without healthcare.
