Stanford Dermatologists are leaders in their fields. Our faculty
members at the Dermatology Clinic 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.
Some medications required after transplant may increase odds of developing skin cancer. The Stanford High-Risk Skin Cancer Clinic offers advanced prevention, treatments, clinical trials and a tumor board.
Medications that suppress the immune system may increase the odds of developing skin cancer. Learn how the Stanford High-Risk Skin Cancer Clinic helped one patient with advanced prevention and treatments.
Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.
Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
