Dermatolgy

Fields of research

  • Allergology: Hypersensitization in bee- and wasp stings allergy, pharmaceutical testing
  • Dermatosurgery: operational therapy of malignant skin tumours, spinocellular carcinomas, skin lymphomas ...
  • Dermatohistology: microscopical evaluation of tissue samples of the skin
  • Lasertherapy: Therapy of vascularizations and vascular malformations, laser- and photodynamic therapy, ablative and fractional laser therapy
  • Oncology: metronomic chemotherapy to destroy tumor-supporting vessle structures
  • Phlebology
  • Photodynamic theraphy (PDT): Theraphy of skin tumors and inflammable skin diseases. The photodynamic therapy is a new minimally invasive method. Thereby a photosensible substance accumulates in malignent, transformed tissue and following radiotherapy leads to apoptosis of these cells.
