Dermatologists at University of Minnesota Children’s Hospital offer your child diagnoses and treatment of medical and cosmetic skin conditions that affect children and teens.

Your child will receive treatment using the latest technologies, including laser treatments, and many of our procedures are performed in a sedation center designed for the comfort of your child or teen.

Our dermatologists are among the team of experts covering a variety of medical specialties who established the world’s first dedicated program to treat the rare skin disease Epidermolysis Bullosa. Pioneered by the researchers in the Blood and Marrow Transplant program, this is an example of innovation created by teams of specialists who are available to your child. They work with experts, for example, in genetics, hematology and oncology, interventional radiology, neonatology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, plastic surgery and rheumatology to create treatments for the most challenging illnesses that children experience.
