Clinical interest for patients

I am co-director of the Cleft and Craniofacial Surgery programs at the Children's Hospital of Colorado. I have a special interest in craniosynostosis, cleft lip and palate, vascular malformations, congenital nevi, and general pediatric plastic and reconstructive surgery. I also have an adult cosmetic and reconstructive practice at the University of Colorado Hospital. I have special interest in cosmetic surgery of the eyes, face, neck, breasts, abdomen and body.
