Dr. Tirgan is a medical oncologist who specializes in the treatment and research of keloid disorder. He began seeing keloid patients through his oncology practice and soon realized the need for highly trained specialists to treat this deeply misunderstood and complex disorder of the skin. In 2008, Dr. Tirgan began focusing his practice on the non-surgical treatment of keloid and now limits his practice solely to the treatment of individuals with this disorder and now is the only physician in North America with a pure specialty practice that is limited solely to the treatment of individuals with this disorder. He has treated approximately 900 keloid patients, adults and children, with all types of keloid. His patients come from every corner of the United States, as well as countries around the world such as Canada, Mexico, Italy, England, Ghana, Nigeria and the United Arab Emirates. He is an avid researcher of keloid and has published peer-reviewed articles on his findings. His dedication and sole focus on helping keloid patients, coupled with his vast clinical experience, has allowed him to develop unparalleled expertise in treating this complicated disorder. Dr. Tirgan is an attending physician at Mount Sinai St. Lukeâ€™s Roosevelt Hospital and Rockefeller University Hospital in New York, NY. He is also a clinical instructor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Much of Dr. Tirganâ€™s success in treating Keloid Disorder is due to his background in oncology. His expertise in treating all types of cancer led him to his treatment strategies for improving the outcome of keloid treatment. He understands the physical and psycho-social effects of Keloid Disorder, and his patients report a compassionate and respectful bedside manner. He takes the time to understand the unique circumstances of each of his patients and creates a treatment plan that is tailored to each personâ€™s particular needs. He has been successful in treating some of the most difficult forms of keloid including those that have reoccurred after a long history of inappropriate treatment, such as multiple surgeries, radiation therapy and steroid injections.
