Dermatology Services

Better Skin. Better You.


The Dermatology service at The Karen Hospital provides both outpatient and inpatient services for the diagnosis and management of dermatological conditions affecting people of all ages. The team of dermatologists at hospital have the experience and expertise to treat almost any skin conditions and will decide on the best course of treatment for patients. They are equally adept at performing a wide range of surgical and aesthetic dermatological procedures. A unique strength of the outpatient service is the close collaborative practice among both dermatologists and plastic and cosmetic surgeons at The Karen Hospital, providing a one-stop service for all skin-related conditions.
