The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) is the largest specialty organization in the United States exclusively representing dermatologic surgeons who have unique training and experience to treat the health, function and beauty of skin throughout every stage of life. ASDS members are recognized as leaders in the field of cosmetic and medically necessary skin surgery. They also are pioneers in the field; many are involved in the clinical studies that bring popular treatments to revitalize skin and fill and diminish wrinkles to the forefront. Their work has helped create and enhance many of the devices that tighten skin and remove blemishes, hair and fat. Dermatologic surgeons also are experts in skin cancer prevention, detection and treatment. As the incidence of skin cancer rises, dermatologic surgeons are committed to taking steps to minimize the life-threatening effects of this disease.
The ASDS supports its more than 5,700 members through educational opportunities, networking forums, mentoring programs, public awareness activities, leadership activities and advocacy efforts (through the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery Association).

Dermatologic surgery is one of the most innovative and progressive medical subspecialties in the U.S. Founded in 1970, the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) and its nearly 5,700 members are at the forefront of the development of safe, in-office procedures that are saving lives by diagnosing and treating potentially deadly skin cancers earlier and more effectively.
The ASDS, serving more than 5,700 members, is dedicated to advancing dermatologic surgery – one of the most innovative and progressive medical specialties worldwide. Each year, hundreds of ASDS members serve in leadership roles, guiding the important work of the organization. The following governance documents are resources used to support these activities:
With a membership of nearly 5,700 physicians, the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery Association, a 501(c)6 association, was created to promote the educational and professional interests of dermatologic surgeons; provide a vehicle for advocacy and public education efforts on behalf of dermatologic surgeons and their patients; and address socio-economic issues that impact the practice of dermatologic surgery as a specialty.
The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery Association advocates for patient safety and access to quality care, skin cancer prevention and education, and fair and appropriate office-based surgery regulation.
The ASDS is recognized as the premier specialty group representing dermatologists performing all procedures – cosmetic, general, reconstructive and Mohs. ASDS members are experts in treating skin and soft tissue with surgical and non-surgical methods.
