About

Bio

The blending of art and science is important in plastic surgery. After training in a plastics residency, I increased my expertise with an aesthetic/breast fellowship. Each patient is unique with individual problems and concerns. A very personal approach is the only way to practice medicine.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
