Cosmetic Surgery and Skin Health Academic Resources
There are many dermatologists who can perform cosmetic treatments. What sets Dr. Obagi's practice apart is her relationship with the University of Pittsburgh Department of Dermatology, the region’s only academic dermatology program. Dr. Obagi is associate professor of dermatology and associate professor of plastic surgery at the University of Pittsburgh, and trains physicians from around the world on the latest procedures in cosmetic and laser surgery.
The University of Pittsburgh, receives millions of dollars each year from the National Institutes of Health to fund groundbreaking research, which positions UPMC clinical programs among the best in the nation and allows UPMC patients access to the most promising procedures as soon as they become available. As a patient of UPMC's Cosmetic Surgery and Skin Health Center, you will have the advantage of receiving treatment in an environment where research into the best dermatological practices of today and in the future is paramount.
Our doctors participate in local and national studies to try and find new treatment options for dermatology disorders. These studies are called clinical trials. Our clinical trials are constantly changing. If you are interested in participating, visit the Office of Clinical Research's website for a searchable listing of all clinical trials.
