Do you need a skin condition addressed?  At Brentwood Dermatology, we utilize surgical dermatology to treat various skin conditions – everything from birthmarks and atypical moles to cysts and skin cancer. 

Our board-certified dermatologists have received advanced training in specialized surgical procedures, such as Mohs, laser, and reconstructive surgery to help our patients restore the health of their skin.

The various procedures within surgical dermatology may involve the superficial layers of the skin or extend through to the underlying layers of muscle or fat below, depending on the condition being treated.
