Our Skin Health & Laser Professionals

A relocation to Jackson, MS, caused her to change her specialty to pediatrics as a staff nurse at Children’s Medical Group until 2008. Fortunately for us, Jane returned to Huntsville in 2009 and joined us as a laser provider in the Skin Health and Laser Department.
She has had hundreds of hours of training and thousands of hours of providing laser and skin health treatments to our patients. She is currently the Skin Health and Laser Department Clinical Manager in addition to providing excellent laser and skin health services to her patients. Her knowledge base encompasses both surgical and non-surgical aspects of plastic surgery. She is a great asset to our practice!

Kelly Alcorn, RN, BSN
Kelly received her Bachelor of Science in nursing in 1992 from The University of Alabama, Huntsville. Her nursing career actually began in 1991 in surgery at Huntsville Hospital. She worked there until 1994, at which time she came to work with Dr. Pat Burlison, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon. Dr. William Alison joined Dr. Burlison’s practice in 1995, which began his plastic surgery practice.
After Dr. Burlison’s retirement in 1998, Dr. Alison and his staff joined Dr. Dunagan and Dr. Yates. At that time, Kelly was the nursing team leader for Dr. Alison. In 2007, after working part-time for a few years, a position in the Skin Health Department opened. Due to her interest and enthusiasm for the science of skin health, Kelly decided to join that team.
