About Me

I practice both aesthetic and reconstructive surgery. I’m interested in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the breasts, chest wall reconstruction, complex abdominal wall reconstruction (hernia repair), body contouring, lower extremity reconstruction, the surgical treatment of migraine headaches and microsurgery.

What I enjoy about The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is how we take care of our patients. Working together, we try to solve problems using the latest techniques and technology. We approach each patient one at a time.

There’s no cookie-cutter approach, cookbook or recipe I follow. I sit down with patients and listen to their problems and concerns. I try to give them a result they’ll be happy with.

I spend the time to get to know my patients and appreciate their concerns. Then, I tell them whether I can reliably and predictably give them the results they want.

I treat my patients like they are my family. If it’s not good enough for my family, it’s not good enough for my patients.
