Meet Keloid Specialist, Dr. Michael Tirgan
Keloid Specialist Dr. Michael Tirgan
Dr. Tirgan is a medical oncologist who specializes in the treatment and research of keloid disorder. He began seeing keloid patients through his cutaneous oncology practice in 2007. Through this practice, he quickly realized the need for highly trained specialists for proper treatment of this deeply misunderstood and complex genetic 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. Dr. Tirgan is the only physician in North America with a pure sub-specialty practice that is limited solely to the treatment of individuals with this disorder. As of June 2018, Dr. Tirgan has treated approximately 1,200 keloid patients with all kinds of keloids. This includes not only adult patients with keloids, but also very young children. Dr. Tirgan’s sub-specialty practice attracts patients from every corner of the United States as well as patients from other countries around the world such as Canada, Mexico, India, Italy, England, Singapore, Norway, Nigeria and the United Arab Emirates, etc.
Dr. Tirgan is an authority and an international leader in non-surgical treatment of keloid patients. He is an avid researcher of keloid disorder, and has published several peer-reviewed articles on his findings in this disorder. Realizing the need for better treatments for keloid patients, in 2011 Dr. Tirgan established the Keloid Research Foundation, a 501 (c) non for profit research organization, for purpose of bringing together scientists and researchers so that they can join forces to research this disorder with the ultimate goal of developing innovative treatments for keloid disorder. This effort led to establishing International Keloid Symposium Series with the first ever keloid symposium that took place in September 2016 at Rockefeller University in New York, Subsequently, Dr. Tirgan organized the 2017 Spring Keloid Symposium in Marrakesh, Morocco. The 2nd International Keloid Symposium took place in June 2018 in Rome, bringing scientists and researchers from 22 different countries. During this meeting in Rome, Dr. Tirgan received an invitation to take the 3rd International Keloid Symposium to Beijing. The efforts of Dr. Tirgan will gradually pay off by way of formation of stronger International Coalition and Collaboration against Keloid.
Dr. Tirgan is also a speaker and lecturer about keloid disorder. He has been invited to speak at several national and international meetings to give talks and lectures, as well as presenting his own clinical research data. It is 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.
Michael H. Tirgan is an attending physician at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s, Mount Sinai West (Roosevelt) Hospital and Rockefeller University Hospital in New York, NY. Dr. Tirgan is also a clinical instructor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Much of Dr. Tirgan’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 that have shown better outcomes for keloid patients.
This is how some of our patients describe Dr. Tirgan
Matt R. says: Dr. Michael Tirgan is in a class of his own and a true example to every other practicing MD. In addition to his incredible knowledge of Keloids, as well as other medical matters, he genuinely cares for his patients and demonstrates both concern and compassion to what his patients are going through. His treatments work and they are proven through multiple testimonies. My facial keloids have shown significant improvement and I put 100% trust in his recommended actions. For anyone considering the cost of treatment or travel expense to come to NY, you should not give it a second thought as you will find no other MD that is in his league.
Raffaela M. says: Besides being a professional and great at what he does he is one of the kindest most gentle people that I have ever met. I have been taking my son to see him and my son loves going to him because he shows genuine interest in him. I only wish that every doctor could be just like him. The medical field would be a better place. He is wonderful professionally and personally! He is perfect!
