Dermatopathology

Under the direction of Dr Jose A. Plaza, our dermatopathology services offers expert skin biopsy interpretation and consultation in the diagnosis of benign and malignant dermatologic diseases. We utilize the most advanced technologies available including light microscopy, immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence and molecular tests. Our goal is to deliver expert interpretation of skin biopsies for clinicians who believe in the value of superior diagnostic services and high-quality handling of their specimens. We pride ourselves in providing accurate diagnoses across the entire spectrum of skin disorders, ranging from the routine to the most complex of cases.

The Dermatopathology Division in the Department of Pathology at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin is staffed by nationally recognized physicians who are committed to providing outstanding patient care, educating future academic and community based dermatologists and dermatopathologists, and educating residents and medical students. We also actively participate in advancing the understanding of skin disease by performing clinical research.
