About Me

As a plastic surgeon at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I specialize in peripheral nerve surgery for acquired nerve injuries and peripheral neuropathies of the upper and lower extremities. In my line of work, I regularly perform procedures to reanimate limbs, relieve patients’ debilitating pain and restore sensation for those with nerve injuries.

As one of very few peripheral nerve surgeons in the world, I am dedicated to growing this subspeciality to improve patients’ quality of life. I always tell my patients that we are going to be good friends because nerve growth is a years-long process and I am committed to supporting them through the entire journey. My patients inspire me and it is rewarding to see them recuperate and regain function following surgery.

My research is focused on developing treatments to make nerve regrowth more efficient and faster. I am also exploring strategies for rewiring nerves with the goal of preventing muscle atrophy, restoring motion and relieving pain. I have authored more than 100 peer-reviewed journal articles in addition to other publications. I also lead a federally funded translational scientific research investigation of advanced limb reconstruction.

In addition to my clinical work, I am helping to train the next generation of physicians. I am a professor in and serve as the chair of the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. I also serve on the scientific advisory board for the International Symposium of Neural Regeneration, the board of the Plastic Surgery Research Council and the American Society for Peripheral Nerve.
