Dr. Venna believes it is an exciting time to be a dermatologist. Breakthroughs in research have lead to powerful and personalized new therapies that control and, in some cases, cure skin diseases such as melanoma.
Dr. Venna understands the role philanthropy plays in funding research and in bringing new treatments to the bedside. Recently, Dr. Venna was instrumental in working with a grateful patient who donated funds to purchase a leading-edge diagnostic technology known as Vectra 360. The technology captures 3D images of the body, allowing physicians to review and track changes in the skin. The device is vital in the diagnosis and monitoring of melanoma and other skin disorders, and gives oncologists, like Dr. Venna, better information to prescribe personalized treatments for patients.
