About Me

I’m a plastic surgeon specializing in oncologic reconstruction, lymphedema surgery, microsurgery, breast reconstruction and breast surgery. Often the best treatment for patients with cancer and other conditions is surgery. My goal is to help patients regain as much of their original look as possible and minimize the negative impact cancer has had on their lives.

When a patient comes to see me, I will spend our consultation time explaining what they should expect and everything involved in pre-operative and post-operative care.

I serve on the faculty at The Ohio State University as an assistant professor of plastic surgery. My work has been published in such relevant medical journals as Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the Annals of Plastic Surgery. I’ve made presentations at national and international meetings.

At the OSUCCC – James we are committed to providing the very best care to our patients with empathy, compassion and kindness. It’s another reason this is such a great place to work – and a great place to receive treatment.

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.

As of 03/28/2017, Dr. Cabiling has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
