Dr. Brett Coldiron: 50,000+ Skin Cancers Cured!

Take a glimpse into a day in the life of Dr. Brett Coldiron at the Skin Cancer Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Dr. Brett Coldiron and his team of board-certified physicians at the Skin Cancer Center have treated over 50,000 skin cancers since the Center opened in 1992. The Skin Cancer Center is the only Joint Commission accredited Mohs Micrographic Surgery facility in Ohio.

Mohs Surgery: The Most Effective Treatment for Skin Cancer

Mohs micrographic surgery is the most effective and advanced treatment for skin cancer. It is performed on an outpatient basis using a highly specialized and precise technique that removes the cancer in stages, one tissue layer at a time. This technique allows physicians to precisely identify and remove a tumor while leaving the surrounding healthy tissue intact and unharmed. Mohs surgery offers the highest potential for cure – even if the skin cancer has been previously treated by another method.

To ensure that your skin cancer treatment is performed to the highest standards of quality and competency, be sure to call 513.221.2828 The Skin Cancer Center and schedule an appointment.
