    Dermatologic surgeons are Board-certified dermatologists who are also members of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS). According to the ASDS website "Dermatologic surgery deals with the diagnosis and treatment of medically necessary and cosmetic conditions of the skin, hair, nails, veins, mucous membranes and adjacent tissues by various surgical, reconstructive, cosmetic and non-surgical methods. The purpose of dermatologic surgery is to repair and/or improve the function and cosmetic appearance of skin tissue."
