My goal as a plastic surgeon is to restore the form and function which nature and misfortune may have taken away. My role is to educate patients on their condition and options available for treatment. Combined with the ability to find ways to solve the most complicated and challenging surgical problems — patients' desired outcomes can be achieved.
