About Me

To me, plastic surgery is the perfect combination of art and surgery. No two patients are alike and no two solutions are the same. I get to help people feel better about themselves and that’s such a rewarding experience. I believe a patient’s questions and concerns should take priority at our appointments so we can build a foundation for a good outcome. Knowing more about what a patient thinks and feels allows us to have a conversation about what’s achievable and what’s safe. Throughout a patient’s journey, I strive to be a partner and advocate for them at every step.

I started my career in academics and then branched out into private practice for several years. This has given me a broader perspective on surgical technique, safety, efficiency and experience that others don’t have. I ultimately felt that academics was a better fit for me as it allows me to practice in state-of-the-art facilities, train the next generation of plastic surgeons and work as part of a team.

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I’m the director of aesthetic surgery in the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. I enjoy working here because of the camaraderie within the Buckeye community and focus on advancing patient care. We all have the Buckeye spirit and it shows in the way we treat our patients!

In my free time, I love spending time with my wife and two children.
