The Dermatology & Plastic Surgery Institute offers patients a full range of dermatologic, reconstructive and aesthetic services. Our specialists focus far beneath the skin. Dermatologists and plastic surgeons at Cleveland Clinic are as concerned with function as with appearance. They collaborate in a multidisciplinary setting with ear, nose and throat specialists, ophthalmologists and dentists to provide the highest level of care and ensure that patients’ varying aesthetic needs and functional requirements are met.
The Department of Dermatology includes more than 30 dermatologists who offer a full array of subspecialized care for adult and pediatric patients. Our physicians provide expert diagnosis and treatment of all disorders of the skin, hair and nails, whether primary or related to an underlying systemic illness, including industrial-related conditions. The department also offers a full range of procedures in the area of dermatologic surgery, including laser surgery, soft tissue augmentation and Mohs micrographic surgery. Additionally, our Cutaneous Care Center provides outpatient treatment, utilizing phototherapy and excimer laser treatment, for patients with psoriasis and other chronic skin diseases.
The Department of Plastic Surgery includes more than 15 board-certified plastic surgeons, making it one of the largest plastic surgery departments in the country.
