I am a plastic and reconstructive surgeon who treats adults, adolescents, and children. My practice includes all types of plastic and reconstructive surgery, with a focus on gender-affirming surgery and soft tissue reconstruction after cancer treatment or injury. I also have a strong interest in multidisciplinary care of transgender and gender nonconforming individuals and serve as Director of Main Line Health Comprehensive Gender Care.
I was initially drawn to plastic surgery due to the fine technical precision required as well as the ability to help patients of all ages. During my training, I developed special expertise in breast reconstruction, gender-affirming surgery, pediatric plastic and reconstructive surgery, reconstructive microsurgery, and cosmetic surgery, as well as nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedures. I also was active in research focused on patient safety, presenting nationwide and winning an award for my research on safe and appropriate pain control following plastic surgery procedures.
An important part of my job as plastic surgeon is to get to know my patients and their stories, as well as their jobs, interests, hobbies, and goals for surgery. All these factors must be considered when choosing a surgical procedure that is right for them. I love the creativity and flexibility in implementing different principles of plastic surgery to tailor care to the needs of each patient. Most of all, I find great reward in being able to help improve a person's life and feelings of self.
