About

Bio

I have been in private practice in Palm Beach Florida for over 36 years. I went to medical school at Northwestern in Chicago, completed an internship at University hospital in Jackson MS and did my residency at Barnes Hospital Washington University Medical School In St Louis. After serving in the USAF I moved to Palm Beach Florida. I have authored over 50 articles, chapters in medical textbooks and written a book on Facial Aesthetic Surgery. I have lectured in Europe, S. America, Dubai, Central American,Mexico on all aspects of facial and cosmetic surgery. As a pioneer in liposuction, the latest developments in 2015 are the harvesting of stem cells from your fat as well as the new hydra dissolve technique. In order to have total safety and control for the patient I have an accredited outpatient surgical suite in my office.
