Our Office


The Melanoma Center of Hope is in Bonita Springs, FL, and was previously known as Florida Surgical Oncology,  located in Naples, FL. Since 1999 Dr. Ritter and his staff have sought to provide the Southwest Florida community with exceptional skin cancer care, especially melanoma. We focus on providing our patients with more than a mechanical approach to cancer care, treating not just the disease, but also providing support during a tough time.  The Melanoma Center of Hope is located at 9776 Bonita Beach Road SE suite 102 at the corner of Wisconsin St and is part of the HealthCare Center of Bonita Springs. Our office is located near the rear of the building, with our entrance located just before the beginning of the glass section of the building.
