In Bethesda, Maryland, just outside the Capital Beltway and Washington D.C., there is plastic surgeon whose practice boasts a state-of-the-art, accredited, in-office surgery center called The Bethesda Surgery Center. Dr. Roger J. Oldham’s Bethesda practice has been created with patients in mind. Dr. Oldham’s 25+ years in plastic surgery practice have allowed him to work closely with patients and understand what they want and what they need. Skin care is one of Dr. Oldham’s primary concerns and his practice has been counseling and caring for patients’ skin health since the beginning. With skin lesion and mole removal performed in-office, Dr. Oldham can conveniently care for patients and ensure them the peace of mind and aesthetic advantage that comes with healthy skin.
Through the convenience of providing in-office mole removal to patients, Dr. Oldham can dedicate a significant portion of this time in the office to removing malignant or cancerous lesions or to providing mole removal to vigilant patients who seek prevention before atypical cell growth occurs. According to the American Cancer Society, nearly 99% of skin cancers are treatable and curable through the use of mole removal surgical procedures—the very kind which Dr. Oldham offers in his Bethesda plastic surgery practice. The other 1%, melanoma, is responsible for over 90% of the skin cancer-related deaths in America. Because it is so dangerous, Dr. Oldham and other physicians encourage you to watch for changes in moles over time (size, shape, color, borders, etc.).
If you do find that one of these changes is occurring, please contact our practice today. You can meet with Dr. Oldham for an initial consultation to find out whether or not mole removal is right for you.
