Lycia Thornburg, MD

Dr. Thornburg was born and raised in Waukesha, Wisconsin.  She received her Bachelor of Science from the University of Wyoming, attended medical school at the Medical College of Wisconsin and completed a residency at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. She joined The Skin Institute at the Rapid City Medical Center in 2004.

Dr. Thornburg specializes in general and pediatric dermatology, surgical dermatology, laser surgery and fillers including Botox and Juvederm. She also focuses on the early detection of skin cancers.

Her personal care philosophy and an adaptation of one of her favorite quotes by Maya Angelou is, “At the end of the day people won’t remember what you said or did, they will remember how you made them feel.”  She finds it important to go above and beyond for patients.  That includes investigating the best treatment options available, as well as educating patients on the tools necessary to achieve and maintain healthy skin.  At the end of the day, Dr. Thornburg wants to make her patients feel like red carpet guests.
