Nationally and Internationally Recognized for Excellence in Treating Childhood Skin Conditions
SLUCare pediatric dermatology works with patients and physicians across the globe to provide diagnostic, medical and investigative services for children and adolescents with all forms of skin disease.
Noted pediatric dermatologist Dr. Elaine Siegfried leads the SLUCare team. Our expertise includes treatment of congenital and acquired skin problems, especially treatment of severe inflammatory skin disease.
Our focus is strictly pediatric patients, so we have extensive experience in making skin examinations and procedures as comfortable as possible for your child. We offer inpatient and outpatient services through SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital, where we collaborate with other pediatric specialists as needed to offer your child coordinated, personalized care.
In addition to treating patients in St. Louis, our team connects with patients in physician offices throughout the world via eConsultations (telemedicine), as well as other web technologies. This innovative approach to care allows us to deliver specialty dermatologic services where they are otherwise unavailable, reducing hospital visits and lowering health care costs for families.
Our affiliation with Saint Louis University — a major research institution — allows our pediatric dermatology team to incorporate the very latest research into your child's care. It is the kind of treatment you will find only at an academic medical practice and only through SLUCare.
