Many surgeons who have worked alongside Dr. Janiga have called him the most technically gifted surgeon they have had the pleasure of working with.


With highly respected credentials, academic achievements and almost a decade of experience to his credit, Dr. Janiga looks amazing on paper. Incredibly, he is even more impressive in person.

He is drawn to the detailed nature of plastic surgery and the tremendous s ense of accomplishment that comes from the immediate physical and psychological changes that take place for his patients.

Board-Certified Dermatologist

Jen Janiga, Dermatologist


Dr. Janiga enjoys taking care of both adults and children. Her extensive training and years of experience in medical dermatology, lasers, and cosmetic procedures allows her to treat her patients with the comprehensive attention they deserve.


Clearly a person who knows what she wants; Dr. Janiga always knew she wanted to be a dermatologist even before her first day of medical school at the University of Nevada. "I like that you can see on the outside the signs of what can be going on in the inside. It's a window into what people have gone through," says Dr. Janiga about what has drawn her to help people through dermatology.


Dr. Janiga's rather refreshing approach to healthcare is simple yet brilliant. She listens attentively to what patients have to say, and works with them in planning the right course of action on an individual basis. Honest talk, humility and a fresh perspective paired with years of experience and education all contribute to the effectiveness of her straightforward care.
