Specialties

Dr. David C Ritter has the following 2 specialties

  • Surgical Oncology

    Surgical oncologists play various roles in treating cancer. They can perform biopsies to determine if a tumor is cancerous or not. If it is, they’re trained to remove the tumor, tissue, and in some cases, all or part of an organ or bodily structure where the cancer has spread. In addition to removing cancer, they can perform any reconstructive surgeries that may be necessary.
    Many surgical oncologists specialize in certain types of cancer, such as liver, lung or breast. Don’t be afraid to ask them what they have the most experience treating. When looking for a doctor, it’s important to know that general surgeons are also qualified to perform many of the same surgeries. However, surgical oncologists have specific training in recognizing and treating cancer, which some patients prefer.

I was told by my NJ dermatologist as I was someplace in South Carolina driving to my new home in Ft Myers that I had a very large Melanoma on my cheek that required immediate surgery. I was very shaken up by that and started looking for a doctor as soon as I got to Ft Myers. I contacted the doctors who billed themselves as Dermatology/Surgeons but what I found right off the bat is that because I wasn't a rich female looking to get a better figure, none of them wanted my case. Two of them did do me a tremendous favor by referring me to Doctor Ritter. When Dr Ritter's office saw my pathology report from NJ, they found time to see me the next day at 6:40AM. By 10AM I had been seen by Dr Ritter and a number of members of his staff including his wife who is both nurse and counselor and probably part ANGEL! They also found a way for me to have X-Rays, EKG's and blood work by 10:30AM. I don't know how they were able to accomplish it but I was then scheduled for surgery at The Naples Day Surgery Center the next afternoon. Things happened so fast I hardly had time to begin to worry about it. Although I initially had a scar that was 7 inches long and covered all of my cheek and part of my neck, after two weeks it is almost invisible! My follow-up care has been excellent and the people at The Naples Day Surgery Center are just fantastic. Dr Ritter was the last person I saw before I went under anesthesia and he was the first person I saw when I woke up. Although I wouldn't wish what I went through on my worst enemy, Dr Ritter and his wonderful staff made it as comfortable as it could possibly be.

I wanted an expert with malignant melanoma. Wherever that knife enters could spread the disease. I wanted a fellowship trained surgical oncologist

I wanted an expert with malignant melanoma. Wherever that knife enters could spread the disease. I wanted a fellowship I wanted an expert with malignant melanoma. Wherever that knife enters could spread the disease. I wanted a fellowship trained surgical oncologist. I had no pain after surgery and my scar is almost invisible with only after 6 months. The staff was always kind and loving. Pray made a huge impact and gave me hope in life and healing! Dr. Ritter is the only surgeon I would choose to care for this disease.
