Diagnosis & Treatment
The skin is our largest organ, and plays a crucial role in protecting the rest of our body from the environment. Daily exposure to irritants and environmental hazards prematurely age and cause other types of damage to our skin.
The skin is also subject to diseases and conditions which result both from our genetic make up as well as random events. Conditions of the skin can also be a manifestation of internal disease. Due to the complexity of this important organ, including the presence of various cell types, there are hundreds of different conditions which can effect the skin.
The diagnosis and management of skin conditions can therefore be extremely challenging.

Dr. Henke and his providers perform skin surgery under local anesthesia to treat a variety of malignant, premalignant and benign skin growths. While the appropriate surgical treatment for a given growth is of the utmost importance, your cosmetic outcome and comfort is also always a priority. Dr. Henke will personally address any questions or concerns you may have before, during and following the procedure.
Skin biopsies are important in diagnosing a variety of growths (including skin cancers) as well as certain inflammatory skin conditions and some skin infections. There are several types of skin biopsies which can be preformed depending on the type and location of the growth or condition. As Dermatologists with prior dermatopathology training, Dr. Henke and his providers can choose the appropriate procedure and interpret the dermatopathologist’s report accurately. They can then offer the best treatment options.
