Introduction

I have extensive training and experience in the topics of plastic surgery of the breast, body, face, neck, head, extremities, hands and eyes. Similar topics like scars, revision surgery, wounds, microsurgery, reconstruction, trauma, lymphedema, cancer and injectables are within the scope of my practice.

I trained at Johns Hopkins and internationally. I am a well-published author of more than 50 textbook chapters and journal articles related to the above topics. I am looking to offer my services in medical malpractice case review, consultation, written evaluation & testimony in depositions and trial for plaintiff & defense. I am an articulate subspecialty consultant with up to date knowledge and expertise of the plastic surgery literature and standards of care. My opinions and treatment strategies are supported by extensive subspecialty education, training and experience.
