Dr. Tiffany Tello Joins APEX Dermatology Group


Fellowship-Trained Mohs Surgeon, Tiffany Tello, MD, joins Denver
office of APEX Dermatology, now part of U.S. Dermatology Partners

Tiffany Tello
, a board-certified dermatologist and
fellowship-trained dermatologic surgeon, began seeing patients July 25
at APEX Dermatology Group in Denver. APEX Dermatology patients will now
have the convenience of choosing Mohs micrographic surgery as a
treatment option at the Denver office.

Dr. Tello graduated magna cum laude from the University of Denver with a
bachelor's degree in biology. She earned her medical degree from the
University of Colorado, where she was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha
medical honor society and received several awards for her research. She
completed her dermatology residency training at the top-ranked
University of California, San Francisco and stayed on to complete
fellowship training in Mohs micrographic surgery, facial reconstructive
surgery, and laser and cosmetic surgery.

She has published numerous peer-reviewed journal articles, several
textbook chapters, and has presented her research at national and
international meetings. She is a member of the American Academy of
Dermatology, American College of Mohs Surgery, and the American Society
for Dermatologic Surgery.

Dr. Tello specializes in Mohs micrographic surgery and reconstructive
surgery for the treatment of skin cancer. Mohs surgery is the most
effective treatment for most types of skin cancer. The Mohs procedure
involves surgically removing the cancer layer by layer and examining the
tissue under a microscope until healthy, cancer-free tissue around the
tumor is reached (commonly referred to as clear margins).
Fellowship-trained Mohs surgeons are trained as a cancer surgeon,
pathologist, and reconstructive surgeon. Mohs surgery has the highest
success rate of all treatments for skin cancer, up to 99 percent.

Dr. Tello also has advanced training in cosmetic dermatology and laser
procedures. In addition to procedural dermatology, Dr. Tello sees
general dermatology patients with skin conditions including acne,
rosacea and eczema.

"In addition to the convenience for our patients, I would like to bring
up how excited we are to have a physician of Dr. Tello's caliber and
compassion joining our team," says Dr.
Alexandra Theriault
, a board-certified dermatologist with APEX
Dermatology Group, "She trained in our clinic when she was a medical
student at CU, so it's very special for me to have her return to our
clinic after she completed her residency and fellowship training at such
an exemplary program as University of California, San Francisco."

After living in San Francisco for the past 5 years, Dr. Tello is
delighted to move back to Denver and join APEX Dermatology. In her free
time she can be found skiing, hiking, spending time outdoors with her
yellow lab, and enjoying her husband's vegan cooking. In the community,
Dr. Tello has organized several skin cancer screening events and serves
as medical staff for the Send It Foundation, a nonprofit organization
providing outdoor adventures for young adults battling cancer.
