About the Department of Adult and Pediatric Dermatology, Allergology and Phlebology at University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus Dresden

According to the Focus magazine, the Department of Adult and Pediatric Dermatology, Allergology and Phlebology at the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus Dresden ranks among the best German medical facilities specializing in the treatment of skin diseases and skin cancer!

The department offers the full range of diagnostics and treatment of various skin diseases, allergic reactions, sexually transmitted infections, as well as venous pathologies. The department admits both adults and children. Of particular interest is the treatment of various types of skin cancer. The department is equipped with state-of-the-art technologies, for example, systems for carrying out photodynamic therapy, laser systems and other equipment for the effective treatment of the above mentioned diseases. The department annually admits about 3,000 inpatients, and more than 16,000 outpatients. The department's specialists also annually carry out more than 4,100 surgical interventions of varying degrees of complexity. Such high rates testify to the outstanding quality of medical care and the reputability of the medical facility in Germany.

The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Stefan Beissert. The specialist is a recognized expert in dermatology in Germany and Europe. According to the prestigious Focus magazine, he ranks among the best German doctors!

Special attention is paid to the treatment of skin tumors. After surgical removal of the tumor or confirmation of the diagnosis of skin lymphoma, the patient undergoes regular follow-up examinations. Immunotherapy is used for the treatment of high-risk melanoma patients, while the treatment of metastatic melanoma patients is based on chemotherapy in accordance with current international recommendations. A distinctive feature of the department in this field is access to national and international clinical trials of innovative drugs and advanced treatment methods, which in many cases can prolong a person's life.

Psoriasis treatment is also one of the important areas of the department's clinical activity. Psoriasis is a non-infectious skin disorder, in which a reddish-pink, scaly rash forms on the skin. Pathology refers to a fairly common skin disease. Such tests as blood count, skin scrapings to rule out fungal infections, pustule testing, and skin biopsy are commonly used to confirm or exclude the diagnosis. Some patients are also recommended X-ray in order to rule out psoriatic joint lesions. Psoriasis treatment is based on symptomatic therapy. The patients are prescribed medicines that can relieve inflammation and prevent the onset of new rashes. A special diet is an important part of psoriasis treatment. In addition, the normalization of the lifestyle and the elimination of stress factors have a beneficial effect on improving the health condition of the patient with psoriasis. Phototherapy is often prescribed.

Another focus of the department's clinical practice is the diagnostics and treatment of allergic diseases. The department is often visited by patients with allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, pollen and pet allergies, atopic dermatitis, allergic bronchial asthma, food intolerance, drug allergy, occupational allergic reactions, etc. The department's doctors have a wide arsenal of methods for dealing with allergic diseases. These are drug therapy, allergen-specific immunotherapy, anti-IgE therapy, acupuncture, and phototherapy. The required set of therapeutic measures is selected taking into account particular clinical data.

The department's therapeutic offer is complemented by the treatment of venous diseases. The primary focus is on the treatment of varicose veins and spider veins. The first-line treatment is usually pharmacotherapy. If varicose veins have reached a stage at which drug therapy does not ensure satisfactory results, such treatment options as foam sclerotherapy or endovascular intervention are considered.
