      Dr. Ashley Wysong is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Dermatology and Director of Procedural Dermatology and Mohs Micrographic Surgery at USC. She obtained her master’s degree in epidemiology in the Department of Health Research and Policy at Stanford University. She earned her medical degree at Duke University School of Medicine where she was valedictorian of her medical school class. She completed her residency in Dermatology at Stanford University where she also served as Chief Resident. Her fellowship in Procedural Dermatology and Mohs Micrographic Surgery was completed at Scripps Clinic under the direction of Dr. Hugh Greenway in Mohs surgery, Dr. Victor Ross in laser and cosmetic dermatology, and Dr. Leland Housman in veins.

      Dr. Wysong specializes in Mohs surgery and reconstruction for melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer. She has a special interest in locally advanced and metastatic basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma as well as treatment of rare skin tumors. She has significant experience treating skin cancer in high-risk populations such as patients with organ transplants, leukemia/lymphoma, HIV, and other forms of chronic immunosuppression. In addition, she practices the use of cosmetic techniques for the revision of surgical, traumatic, and burn scars.

      Dr. Wysong also has extensive experience in cosmetic dermatology and laser procedures and believes in subtle enhancements to obtain a natural and refreshed look. She is certified by the American Board of Venolymphatic Medicine to perform medical and surgical treatment for patients with varicose veins and other vein conditions.

      As a former NCAA and professional athlete, Dr. Wysong has a special interest in promoting sun safety and skin cancer prevention among outdoor athletes. Her research interests include epidemiology of skin cancer, clinical trials, transplant and other high-risk non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) patients, characterizing high-risk squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), predictors of sunscreen use among NCAA athletes and other populations, quantification and improved characterization of facial aging, and investigations of novel surgical and cosmetic techniques.
