  • I am a board-certified Plastic Surgery and General Surgeon as well a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. My practice focus is on all aspects of surgery of the breast and body with special emphasis on revision breast surgery. I am very involved in local and national societies.

I speak nationally and internationally educating other plastic surgeons about revision breast surgery and practice management.
