Cosmetic and Laser Services

Skin Cancer

We diagnose and treat skin cancer and perform Mohs micrographic surgery. This procedure removes the cancer but preserves healthy tissue.

Autoimmune Skin Disorders

We collaborate with UC San Diego Health rheumatologists to treat conditions that affect the skin as well as other organs, joints and muscles. Find out more.

Clinical Trials

As an academic health system, we conduct clinical research trials to help develop new treatments. Find out if we offer any trials you might be interested in participating in.


The dermatopathology service receives and processes specimens from the dermatology clinics as well as from clinics of family practice, internal medicine and plastic surgery.

Consults are also provided for local and out-of-state practitioners. For information and referrals, contact the dermatopathology assistant at 858-657-1285
