Care for a wide range of conditions

UW Health dermatologists care for patients with conditions that affect the skin, hair and nails.

Mohs surgery
A skin cancer cure

Most skin cancers can be cured if found early. At UW Health, we offer Mohs surgery, a curative treatment for the most common skin cancer types. It's a procedure we developed.

Specialized pathology services

UW Health’s dermatopathologists are physicians with experience in the evaluation and diagnosis of skin tissue obtained by biopsies or excisions. When you have a biopsy or excision, our dermatopathologists will work closely with your physician to ensure a correct diagnosis and treatment plan.
