Stanford Dermatologists are leaders in their fields. Our faculty members are nationally and internationally recognized for their research, teaching and patient care. We offer the most advanced diagnostic and therapeutic interventions at a state of the art facility in Redwood City.
Dermatologists' eyes are uniquely trained to analyze the skin, hair, and nails. They can spot potential problems and diagnose a multitude of conditions that range from minor to life-threatening.
These skills and knowledge can improve the lives of patients of all ages—the infant with a red birthmark, the child with eczema, the baby boomer with sun-damaged skin, the senior citizen with shingles—effectively treating their skin conditions and making them look and feel their best.
Dermatologists also are a great resource for learning how to prevent skin, hair, and nail concerns. They can teach you how to protect yourself from the sun to avoid skin cancer, caution you about hairstyles that can contribute to hair loss, and advise you about how to care for your nails to prevent common conditions such as nail fungus.

Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
