VIDEO: Consider adding photodynamic therapy to your practice




ORLANDO – Dermatologists with the right patient population should consider incorporating photodynamic therapy (PDT) into their practices, as it is becoming an increasingly popular and effective.

Although most dermatologists know about PDT, “They’re not as comfortable setting up the office” and often don’t know the best ways to use PDT to achieve optimal treatment outcomes, explained Dr. Neal Bhatia, director of clinical dermatology at Therapeutics Clinical Research in San Diego, during his session at the Orlando Dermatology Aesthetic and Clinical annual meeting.

In this video interview, Dr. Bhatia, explains the benefits of PDT, what type of patient would be best suited for this treatment, and why it’s increasingly important for dermatologists to offer this treatment to their patients – even if they’ve never considered doing so before.

Dr. Bhatia is a clinical investigator and consultant with Dusa Pharmaceuticals and Biofrontera. He did not report any other relevant disclosures.
