Lurie Children’s has the largest group of Illinois physicians who are board certified in pediatric dermatology (children’s skin diseases). Our seven pediatric dermatologists see more than 12,000 infants, children and teenagers each year, making the division one of the busiest pediatric dermatology services in the nation.
Our doctors are renowned for their expertise in diagnosis and treatment, particularly of complex skin disorders. They also are known for their skill in surgical removal of skin growths and laser treatment for vascular and pigmented skin lesions. Our division helped pioneer the field of pediatric dermatologic surgery and created one of the country’s earliest laser therapy programs for vascular birthmarks.
