As a surgeon who practices reconstructive and aesthetic surgery, I treat patients by restoring function and form. I treat many patients who suffer from deformities from cancer removal, trauma, or congenital issues. My philosophy is to provide the patient with the best reconstructive option available, such that patients can get back with their lives as quickly and as fully as possible.
For breast cancer patients, I have a large experience with all aspects of reconstruction, either using the patient's own tissues or with implants. These techniques are especially helpful for patients undergoing a mastectomy, but they may also be useful for patients who need a partial mastectomy (lumpectomy).
I use a variety of techniques to reconstruct all patients with a variety of other cancers, such as head and neck cancer, sarcoma, skin cancers, melanoma, and other diseases.
I also perform the entire spectrum of cosmetic surgery to help patients feel better about their appearance and overall well-being.
I entered this field because it allows me to be creative with my hands and supportive with my heart to restore the patient with cancer and other issues. My patients can be confident knowing I will treat them like they are members of my family, offering them the very best care available worldwide.
