Dermatology / Dermatopathology
Diseases of the skin can be elusive, and the Dermatology and Dermatopathology expertise offered at CHRISTUS St. Vincent can help identify and treat more serious skin maladies. With the New Mexico's high altitude, people are more at risk for basal cell skin cancer as well as melanoma, a life-threatening form of skin cancer. The expertise of an experienced dermatologist is often key to the diagnosis of skin cancer. We encourage residents of Northern New Mexico to be aware of the threat posed by skin cancer, and if there is a concern, to contact one of our excellent physicians.
