    Philosophy of Care:

    Plastic surgery is a wonderful field because it allows us to help patients in so many different ways, ranging from breast reconstruction after breast cancer to facial reconstruction after malignancy or trauma to limb replantation. The skills we share in this practice allow us to approach a problem from many angles and offer a solution based on a wealth of knowledge and experience.
