MEDICAL SKIN CONDITIONS AND SKINCANCER

Georgetown Dermatology’s expertise is addressing medical skin conditions. The diagnosis, treatment, prevention and patient education related to skin cancer is one of our specialties. We offer complete skin checks examining the patient from head to toe. We educate our patients and take the time to discuss skin cancer prevention. An educated patient who participates in self-care through awareness and self-inspection will be a healthier patient in the long-run.

Georgetown Dermatology provides an unique advanced treatment for actinic keratoses called Photodynamic Therapy. Actinic keratosis are rough-textured, dry, scaly patches on the skin that can lead to skin cancer (precancerous lesions)

Photodynamic Therapy is a 2-part treatment course which uses a light activated drug the rapy to destroy precancerous lesions. The short, 2-part treatment course is conveni ant with low downtime. The treatment requires no prescription to fill and daily m xlication to remember and provides an excellent cosmetic response with no scarring reported to date.

Our medical staff includes an expert dermatopathologist, to provide direct patient care along with expert interpretation of pathology slides. Having an onsite dermatopathologist enables the medical staff to consult immediately with the pathologist face to face to discuss clinical pathology issues. Georgetown Dermatology provides this unique service to our patients.

In addition to skin cancer, we offer consultation and treatment for a full range of other dermatological disorders. Please call our office for any concerns and questions and to schedule an appointment.
