Lynne J. Roberts, M.D. is a pioneer in the field of cutaneous laser surgery. Dr. Roberts has extensive experience and expertise in dermatologic laser surgery, having served as a preceptor for laser training and as a speaker regarding cutaneous laser surgery for adults and children. Laser manufacturers in North America have tapped the expertise of Dr. Roberts by sending laser surgeons from across the United States and from Asia, Europe, Canada, and Mexico to train with her in her Dallas office. Caring for infants and children with birthmarks led to her interest in laser surgery. With the advent of dye laser surgery in 1988, effective treatment for vascular birthmarks was finally available. Thus began her new direction and focus on laser surgery. Dr. Roberts had the privilege of using the first dye laser and, subsequently, the first ruby laser in the Southwest. Her office was also the first to offer LightSheer diode laser hair removal in Dallas.
