Dr. Kathryn Lane is joining U.S. Dermatology Partners Shoal Creek in the Liberty area of Kansas City.
Dr. Lane graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering from Vanderbilt University. She earned her medical degree from the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California. She completed an internship in internal medicine at Huntington Hospital in Pasadena, California, and a dermatology residency and fellowship at the University of California, Irvine.
Dr. Lane is trained in Mohs micrographic surgery, cutaneous oncology, laser medicine and cosmetic dermatology. She is a member of the American College of Mohs Surgery, the American Academy of Dermatology and the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery. She is particularly interested in the detection and treatment of skin cancer, cutaneous oncology and facial reconstruction.
She was drawn to dermatology early. “As early as my teenage years, when I was diagnosed with cystic acne, I learned how important the appearance of healthy skin is to an overall sense of self and well-being,” Dr. Lane says. “Helping people to improve the appearance and health of their skin maximizes overall health in a noticeable and impactful way.”
Dr. Lane was born and raised in Indiana. She is thrilled to return to the Midwest, where she is among friends and family, and she looks forward to building relationships with patients. “The most rewarding part of my job is getting to know people on a deeper level and becoming part of their story,” she says.
She enjoys hiking, skiing, watching football, reading, baking and spending time with her husband and two sons.
