Olivera Stojadinovic, MD PhD

stojadinovic-olivera minars dermatology skin care clinicDr. Olivera Stojadinovic (Dr S.) is a Board Certified dermatologist, holding the position of Voluntary Clinical Professor at the Dr. Phillip Frost Department of Dermatology, University of Miami.

Her focus is on:

  • general and cosmetic dermatology
  • total body skin examinations in patients that have changing moles, personal or a family history of melanoma or either non-melanoma skin cancer (basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma) and significant sun exposure either presently or in the past
  • new and worrisome skin growths
  • hair loss
  • warts, molluscum
  • eczema
  • vitiligo
  • psoriasis
  • skin rashes
  • melasma
  • acne
  • wrinkles and fine lines
  • pediatric dermatology

In her doctorate research project, Dr. S. studied venous leg ulcers to elucidate a subset of stem cell regulated genes that play a role in pathogenesis of venous leg ulcers comparing gene expression profiles obtained from the edges of venous ulcers and normal skin specimens. There is a deregulation of epidermal stem cells and their fate at the edge of chronic venous ulcers.

This deregulation plays a significant role in pathogenesis of chronic venous ulcers. Loss of genes important for regulation of epidermal stem cells and their fate may lead to the deprivation of local population of ESC and contribute to a hyper-proliferative, non-migratory wound edge and overall impairment of healing. In the future we may have a molecular marker that would guide the debridement in order to reach healing responsive cells while removing non-responsive cells at the bedside.

Summary – Chronic venous ulcers – Studied molecular markers that in the future may guide the bedside debridement of these ulcers – allowing doctors to reach healing responsive cells while removing non-responsive cells. (Helping to heal these currently slow or non-healing ulcers.)

Dr. Stojadinovic believes that skin is the mirror of our body and our soul, and approaches every patient with patience and the highest standards of care, to help them look and feel their very best.
