About the department
The Department of Adult and Pediatric Dermatology at the Rambam Health Care Campus Haifa offers comprehensive services for the diagnostics and treatment of skin diseases, including vitiligo, dermatitis and malignant skin tumors, in patients of all age groups. The department has a reputation as one of the innovative medical facilities of this kind in Israel. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Reuven Bergman.
The department uses such modern diagnostic techniques for skin lesions as molecular, histological and immunohistochemical examinations, immunofluorescence and electron microscopy. The department also carries out various types of phototherapy (for example, targeted phototherapy, NB-UVB, BB-UVB therapy, systemic and local PUVA therapy), allergy skin tests for contact dermatitis, computer monitoring and dermatoscopy of moles, including the early diagnostics and treatment of melanoma.
It is worth noting that the team of the department's doctors takes part in the number of research projects. In particular, these are projects devoted to the histological and molecular specificities of hereditary skin diseases, the effect and side effects of new drugs, as well as the examination of skin lymphomas and pseudolymphomas.
The main areas of the department's specialization include:
- Diagnostics and treatment of contact dermatitis
