Message from the Doctor

Dermatology is one of the fastest growing branches of medicine in modern era. It deals with the disorders involving the skin, oral cavity and its appendages (including hair and nail). Leprosy and Sexually transmitted diseases are integral part of discipline. The field as a specialty is evolving only since the late twentieth century. Change has been so striking over the past decades such that illness have been replaced by wellness and patients replaced by clients.  As per the census of MOHP – Nepal (Ministry of health and population) 2013/014, Skin diseases rank the 4th commonest cause of illness in Nepal. The diseases of skin or its appendages can have profound impact in the quality of ones’ life. The burden of skin diseases in Nepal is huge; however we have only handful number of specialists in the discipline.

Skin is considered the largest organ of human body. It forms an impermeable barrier against harmful exterior environment, mediates sensation, regulates temperature, produces vitamin D, prevents from ultraviolet radiation and is an important immune organ. Apart from these vital mechanisms, it is an important part in esthetics (Complexion, Wrinkles and Baldness); taking care of wellness rather than illness. The field of cosmetics and aesthesis is among the largest industries in the world. Also, the diseases, variations and peculiarities that we come across in the brown skin are entirely different from that of the West.

We at cutis care believe in providing quality service in the field of diagnosis and management of skin diseases, the entire aspects of cutaneous surgery, hair transplant, lasers and esthetics. The standard of care has ever been welcomed by our valued and generous patients / clients. We believe our four important pillars to be: diagnosis and management of skin/ hair or nail diseases, dermatosurgery (Including hair transplant surgery, vitiligo surgery, cryosurgery, melanocyte transplant, scar surgery, cosmetic surgery, phototherapy and others), Lasers and facial rejuvenation (including chemical peeling, Botox – Botulinum toxin therapy, dermabrasion, PRP therapy and others ). I am indeed fortunate to have a team of professionally trained staffs and I thank the entire team of cutis care for providing meticulous care to more than patients.
