I strive to provide safe, compassionate, comprehensive, and state of the art care in the most comfortable environment possible. It is important to treat all patients with dignity and respect, and recognize they are unique individuals with physical, psychosocial, and philosophical differences that may affect treatment choices. Working very closely with every patient to establish the best plan allows me to deliver exceptional personalized results that will meet each patient’s goals and expectations.

- Clinical interest for patients
I perform both aesthetic and reconstructive surgery. My clinical areas of interest include breast reconstruction, aesthetic surgery, transgender surgery, and reconstructive microsurgery including the surgical management of lymphedema. Using the most advanced techniques I reconstruct oncologic, traumatic, and congenital defects throughout the body. I also perform cosmetic surgery of the face, eyes, neck, breasts, abdomen, body, and genitalia. In addition, I work very closely with a multidisciplinary team to provide the whole spectrum of gender-affirming surgeries (both feminizing and masculinizing).
- Research interest for patients
I have a special interest in clinical outcomes research aiming to improve safety, patient outcomes, and patient satisfaction.
