Surgical Dermatology

As a Board Certified Dermatologic Surgeon, member of the American Surgical Dermatologic Society, and named “America’s Top Dermatologist” in 2016, Dr. Rana Mays understands the importance of early detection and surgical treatment. Melanoma is an increasingly important public health problem in the United States and worldwide. The occurrence of melanoma has been increasing faster than that of any other cancer in the United States, as well as deaths from melanoma. “The importance of diagnosing skin cancer early in its development is extremely critical,” says Dr. Rana Mays. She recommends an annual skin exam for all adults and more frequent exams for patients with a history of skin cancer.

Skin cancer can be cured when detected and treated early. Melanoma is almost always curable when it’s found in its very early stages. If you have a skin related problem that needs surgical attention, we are here to help. Dr. Mays will examine you and determine the best surgical solution for your type of skin lesion. Dr. Mays has extensive surgical training in skin cancer surgery and excision of benign lesions. Here are some of the dermatological surgical procedures Dr. Mays is trained to perform:

  • Non-melanoma skin cancer removal, such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma
  • Melanoma removal
  • Skin cyst excision or extraction
  • Mole removal, benign and abnormal
  • Lipoma removal
  • Acne extraction
  • Ear lobe repair

If your surgical problem is something that requires a referral to a colleague of Dr. Mays in another specialty, she will work with you to help find the best physician to take care of you. She has relationships with many of the best doctors in Louisville to whom she can refer.
