The Department of Dermatology of School Of Tropical Medicine has passed the ‘2011-2012’ with distinction. Everybody in the department which includes faculties, post graduate students & other staffs contributed in smooth running of day to day activities. We are, what we repeatedly do, Excellence, which is not an act but a Habit. Still we try to do something beyond, what we have done already.
In this year we have served 1,08,052 patients in our outpatient department. According to my knowledge and internet search, no dermatology OPD in India served such number of patients in a year.
This year we have added a new feather in the form of Installing PUVA Chamber in our department. This is the only department where we can provide PUVA Therapy to the patients.
Coming to the daily activities- we are giving services with LASER Therapy, CRYOTHERAPY, ELECTROCAUTERY, RADIOFREQUENCY ABLATION, VITILIGO SURGERY, CHEMICAL PEELING etc. apart from daily consultation.
|Our endeavor is well reflected by the number of patients attending the Dermatology OPD.
