Practice Philosophy

I am interested in providing care for any patient with deformity of the head and face. Such conditions may be congenital, developmental, or the result of trauma or tumor. While surgery is indicated for some deformities, others are best treated nonsurgically, and regardless, I find satisfaction in making a diagnosis, helping the patient and family to better understand the condition, and in contributing to the highest quality care that I am capable. In my practice I am able to do this because I work both as part of a division comprised of other talented plastic surgeons and also as part of a multidisciplinary craniofacial team comprised of individuals from the following disciplines: dentistry, genetics, orthodontics, otolaryngology, pediatrics, prosthodontics, psychology, and speech pathology.
