As an oculoplastic surgeon, I specialize in functional and cosmetic plastic and reconstructive surgery around the eyes. I offer treatments to my patients that improve the function and structure around the eyes, as well as improving a patient’s appearance.
I treat functional eyelid disorders including ptosis (droopy eyelids), eyelid malpositions, tear duct abnormalities and eyelash abnormalities. I also perform surgeries to remove the eye, treat orbital and periorbital tumors, trauma and thyroid eye disease. I provide cosmetic services including upper and lower eyelid surgery, browlift and nonsurgical treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers.
I believe that the physician-patient relationship is the cornerstone of providing excellent medical care. Compassion, communication and competency, as well as earning and maintaining my patients’ trust, is very important to me. I cherish the opportunity to positively impact the quality of my patients’ lives.
I love the collegiality and team approach that we have here at Ohio State. This institution provides patients with a wealth of resources and top leaders in almost every specialty of medicine. Knowing that my patients have access to great resources and providers is invaluable.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter. We love spending time with the rest of our family, enjoying the outdoors and traveling.

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
