Dr. Ladd is board certified in Dermatology and Mohs Micrographic Surgery by the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology. He has been practicing dermatology in Texas for a decade. Early detection of skin cancer is his goal.
Dr. Ladd's focus is on skin cancer, which if detected early can have a 95% cure rate. He is an advocate of monthly self-examination and knowledge of the ABCDE's of melanoma. He performs Mohs Micrographic Surgery, the skin cancer treatment with the highest cure rate which removes the smallest amount of normal skin in the process.
If you have a history of sunburns, have a fair complexion or have a family history of skin cancer please see a dermatologist at least once a year. It could easily save your life. Always request a full body skin exam. This is because the most dangerous skin cancer, malignant melanoma, tends to occur where the sun doesn't shine.
The AOCD was recognized in 1958 as a Specialty College of the American Osteopathic Association. The AOCD now oversees 32 dermatology residency programs that are currently training 163 residents in dermatology.
