Patient Care Setting



“My surgical philosophy is to provide the best care and most comfortable experience to each individual, no matter the size of the problem. From a small skin lesion to a complex facial trauma, every issue is important and deserving of excellent results and aesthetic outcomes.”

Areas of Expertise:

• Cleft lip and palate surgery
• Complex wounds in children
• Craniofacial surgery
• Ear reconstruction
• Facial trauma
• Orthognathic surgery
• Pediatric/adolescent breast surgery
• Pediatric plastic surgery
• Scar revisions
• Skin lesions
• Vascular anomalies

For me, plastic surgery is the perfect combination of art and science. It gives me the opportunity to use my skills to help people while being creative and approaching each problem uniquely to meet specific patient needs. Pediatric and craniofacial plastic surgery allow me to form long-term relationships with patients and their families, which is incredibly rewarding.

A native of Buffalo and long-term Rochester resident, I am returning home after a year of additional specialty training in pediatric and craniofacial plastic surgery. I am bringing to Rochester some new surgical offerings including ear reconstruction and different techniques in cleft jaw surgery and midface distraction. As the only female pediatric plastic surgeon in the Western New York/Finger Lakes region, I am also excited to offer adolescent breast surgery and will be available to young patients who may prefer a female doctor.

My personal goal is to make surgery a comfortable and positive experience for my patients. My goal for the Division of Plastic Surgery is to be comprehensive in our surgical offerings so no patients have to be referred elsewhere for care.
