WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

My focus is on medical dermatology. I follow many patients long-term for regular skin checks and skin cancer surveillance. My academic expertise is in the care of immuno-compromised patients, particularly solid organ transplant recipients. I established the Dermatology Transplant Specialty Clinic, and care for patients with both acute and chronic skin care needs in this setting. I consider myself an important member of the overall transplant care team, pre- and post-transplant. I also care for patients who are HIV positive or those who are immuno-compromised from other medical issues. I often coordinate care with infectious disease, rheumatology, and oncology specialists.

MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

The American Academy of Dermatology is coordinating an effort to study squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) incidence, metastasis, and mortality among transplant recipients and has established the Transplant Skin Cancer Network -- I represent Duke Dermatology in this network, and work in coordination with the Duke Transplant Centers. The purpose of the network will be to conduct a multi-center, retrospective cohort study of SCC using data from transplant recipients’ medical records over a period of up to three years to measure SCC mortality, the risk of metastasis, the incidence of SCC of the skin after different types of transplant and the potential effect of prior history of SCC of the skin and various forms of immunosuppressant used to prevent transplant rejection, and the effect of surveillance times by a dermatologist after transplant on various outcomes including size of SCC, type of treatment, recurrence, metastasis, and survival.
