Dr. Ross Radusky is a senior resident physician in dermatology at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City. He holds a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from the City University of New York, and received his MD from the New York University School of Medicine. He was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa honor society during his senior year of college, graduating Summa Cum Laude. In 2012, he was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society, for which he served as chapter president for two years.
Dr. Radusky’s research interests include the early detection of skin cancers using a combination of optical imaging and skin surface microscopy. These techniques magnify and illuminate individual moles and other skin spots, enabling practitioners to examine specific patterns not yet visible to the naked eye. He has authored articles and textbook chapters on the clues that our finger- and toenails may provide us about internal disease, as well as on comprehensive therapies for cosmetic dermatology and reversing the signs of skin aging.
Complementing his medical practice, Dr. Radusky has a strong passion for the cultural arts, particularly in expanding access to youth and seniors. He previously served as an artist instructor for the Rockaway Artists Alliance, a New York City nonprofit arts and education organization, and then served as both a board director and treasurer of the organization throughout his medical school training.
Dr. Radusky splits his time between New York City and Rockaway Beach, where he can usually be found preventing photoaging and reducing the risk of skin cancer beneath an umbrella in a broad-brimmed hat.
