The Department of Dermatology provides outpatient treatment to about 35,000 patients and day clinic treatment to approximately 5,500 patients yearly. Our specialization is the treatment of diseases of the skin and the mucous membranes, including cancer, melanoma and other malignant or benign tumors, allergies, inflammatory diseases such as psoriasis or autoimmune skin diseases, as well as hereditary skin disorders. All skin diseases can be diagnosed at our department, and highly specialized scientifically valid treatments are used in compliance with international standards.

Skin diseases are very diverse in terms of their clinical presentation. Skin lesions may represent an outer reflection of a given pathology of visceral organs, the central nervous system and the endocrine system. Therefore, fundamental knowledge of the skin is essential in the everyday work of any doctor regardless of his or her specialty.

The Department of Dermatology extensively uses multimodal methods of intensive dermatological therapy. Treatment procedures are optimized for each patient, depending on his or her skin type and disease and encompass both systemic therapies and special topical treatments such as ointments and/or selective UV-light. Each treatment can, upon request, be organized on an inpatient or outpatient basis.

The technical facilities of the diagnostic unit, treatment unit, and operating rooms are equipped with state of the art devices. This, combined with our highly qualified personnel, guarantee the quality and success of treatments given and, therefore, attract more and more patients from all over the world.
