About Me

As a plastic surgeon, I specialize in wound and burn reconstruction, limb salvage, traumatic reconstruction and oncologic or tumor based reconstruction.

I believe that the best way I can help patients is to provide them with the best surgical options. My care philosophy involves combining traditional reconstructive techniques and regenerative therapies with new and innovative ones in order to improve patient outcomes.

The most rewarding part about my work is restoring and reconstructing patients who have been affected by a traumatic injury or a severe tumor defect. I am glad that I have the opportunity to help my patients achieve a more normalized life. I thoroughly enjoy seeing them return to their families and enjoying what many thought may have been taken away from them.
