Meet Our Surgeon

D-Surprenant-small.jpgDr. David Surprenant received a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a minor in Ethics at the University of Notre Dame before attending medical school at Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine in Chicago, IL. After graduation, Dr. Surprenant completed his internship at St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis, IN. He then returned to Chicago for his dermatology training at Loyola University Medical Center, where he served as chief resident.

Following residency, Dr. Surprenant completed advanced training in Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Dermatologic Oncology at Dayton Skin Surgery Center. Completion of this competitive and rigorous fellowship earned Dr. Surprenant membership in the American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS). The ACMS is a membership organization of fellowship-trained skin cancer and reconstructive surgeons specializing in the Mohs micrographic surgical technique used to treat skin cancer.

Dr. Surprenant is board-certified in both dermatology and micrographic dermatologic surgery (Mohs) by the American Board of Dermatology. He is the author of numerous academic publications and is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology, the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, and the American College of Mohs Surgery.

When not caring for patients, Dr. Surprenant enjoys spending time with his wife, Eileen, and four children: Molly, Callan, John, & Claire.

The Fellowship Difference
It is important that all patients understand the training and expertise of any physician treating them. Dr. Surprenant has performed thousands of Mohs surgeries and reconstructive cases. 

While any board-certified Dermatologist may perform Mohs surgery, Dr. Surprenant completed an additional intensive training fellowship at Dayton Skin Surgery Center, under the supervision of an American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS) approved Mohs and reconstructive surgeon. 

The ACMS is the only organization that requires a rigorous application and review process and an additional 1 to 2 years of training after completing a Dermatology residency. The ACMS has and continues to set the highest standards of patient care relating to the management of skin cancers, Mohs surgery, and reconstructive surgery through its fellowship training process.
