In the field of dermatology, there is offered a wide range of surgical treatment methods. All operations on the skin are performed in accordance with the strictest standards of modern dermatologic surgery. In addition to achieving the functional objectives of the intervention, great importance is also attached to the best possible cosmetic result. Many interventions are performed on an outpatient basis, for example, surgical removal of basal cell carcinoma with intraoperative (urgent) histological examination (3D histology similar to Mohs surgery). When detected in the early stages, it is possible to avoid surgery for the treatment of basal cell carcinoma. In such cases, effective treatment results are achieved by surgical sanitation of the affected skin area and local drug therapy
(imiquimod, 5-fluorouracil, the newest method of photodynamic therapy with the use of methyl-5-amino-4-oxopentanoate). In small skin tumors, there are often used conservative treatments, such as topical and drug therapy.
The department widely uses all modern laser devices and IPL laser system, which serve to eliminate pathological changes in the skin, signs of aging and hair removal. The main advantage of laser therapy is the absence of scars. The specialists conduct exhaustive consultations, during which the most suitable method is recommended.
