Dermatologist Dr. Ross Campbell Joins Cowles Clinic

November 02, 2007 • M. Elizabeth Neal, Lake Oconee News

16 Greensboro – Ross. M. Campbell, M.D., FAAD, has joined the Cowles Clinic as the only Mohs-trained surgical dermatologist in the region. He begins office appointments at his practice, Georgia Skin Cancer and Aesthetic Dermatology, today.

“Mohs surgery is performed under a microscope to identify and remove malignant cells, and to preserve all possibly healthy tissue,” Campbell said recently.

Board certified by the American Board of Dermatology, his is a magna cum laude graduate of the Univerity of Georgia and the Medical College of Georgia, and has completed fellowships in Mohs Surgery, Melanoma Immunotherapy and Procedural Dermatology. He is a member and recently served on the board of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, and is one of the very few fellowship-trained Procedural Dermatologists in the country.

“Dermatology has been one of our most frequent inquiries,” said Robert S. Cowles, M.D., founder of the clinic. “It is a pleasure to welcome Dr. Campbell to the Cowles Clinic as our new dermatologist. His training and credentials are extraordinary and are certainly representative of the quality healthcare I believe in and continually strive to bring to this community.”

Campbell obtained a two-year fellowship grant from the National Institutes of Health to investigate melanoma immunotherapy at Emory University. Then, with an eye to the ultimate goal of creating a skin cancer and aesthetic surgery specialty center, he completed a general and plastic surgery internship in Seattle before performing his dermatology residency at Brown Medical School. Although Mohs surgery can and is performed by physicians who have not completed a fellowship, Campbell’s pursuit of excellence in medical and surgical care led him to spend an extra year of fellowship at one of the busiest and most acclaimed Mohs Surgery and Cosmetic Dermatology practices in the country, under the directorship of Gary Monheit, M.D. and Chris Harmon, M.D. During the fellowship, he performed almost 3,000 Mohs surgery cases and became an expert in aesthetic procedures such as belphaoplasty, hair transplantation, laser treatments, chemical peels, soft tissue fillers, dermabrasion and Botox cosmetics.
Campbell has lectured nationally, instructing dermatologists and plastic surgeons on various aspects of Mohs and aesthetic surgery. He has published in numerous dermatologic and cosmetic surgery journals and written several book chapters on surgical and cosmetic procedures.

He moved back to Georgia this year with his family – wife Leah, son Aidan, and their Labrador Retriever. Both the Campbells attended the University of Georgia and have a strong attachment to the region. Leah Campbell is a medical illustrator and accomplished equestrian event rider.
