Surgical Approaches for Keloids


Surgical approach for keloids sounds like an oxymoron since keloids are caused by trauma (surgery, deep injury to the skin that causes inflammation) in genetically predisposed individuals.  However, well orchestrated manipulations during and after surgery can help in the management of the patient with keloid formation tendency. The wound healing process and its alterations in the patient with keloid formation predisposition will be covered during this lecture along with surgical interventions including excisions with healing by second intention, application of immunomodulators as imiquimod, adding radiation therapy as an adjuvant, and using laser assistance. Dr. Perez will also cover physical manipulation alternatives.

Skin Cancer Detection in SOC

In patients with skin of color, Bowen’s, squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma all tend to be pigmented; Palmar, plantar and mucosal melanoma are more common; Hypopigmented mycosis fungoides is common; and Cutaneous T cell lymphoma tends to have a more aggressive course. Dr. Lim will discuss each of these in detail and outline treatment options and management as well as steps to recognize the clinical manifestation of skin cancer in patients with SOC.

 

Henry Lim, MD
Generational Influences and Latino Skin Cancer Risk


In general, the Hispanic population is not aware of their propensity to skin cancer.  Surveys across different populations (young, adult, diverse communities) of hispanic patients has shown that the hispanic populations feels immune to the development of skin cancer.  Hence, the epidemic of melanoma induced death in this population. Dr. Perez will examine the incidence of skin cancer in the hispanic population, the mortality rate, and p
otential explanations for these findings

Current Understanding and Novel Innovations in Photoprotection
