Why I chose medicine

Plastic surgery is a unique surgical subspecialty that combines science with aesthetics and epitomizes the importance of form and function. In addition, it requires one to think outside the box, as no two patients are ever the same offering a creative challenge with every case. It is for these reasons, my love for anatomy and art, a desire to help people and a hunger for a challenge that drew me to plastic surgery.

My special interests are cosmetic surgery, reconstructive surgery, craniofacial surgery, pediatric plastic surgery and wound surgery. My goal is to develop a practice that will provide comprehensive well rounded plastic surgery to the region.
