I am a plastic surgeon who specializes in reconstruction following cancer surgery. Reconstruction is an essential and important part of recovery. Through the use of implants, rearrangement of local tissue, and transfer of tissue from other parts of the body, I aim to restore not just function but appearance and self-confidence. I perform reconstruction in areas throughout the body but am particularly interested in the breast and head and neck regions.

My current research is focused on two areas. I am studying trends in breast reconstruction in the United States, such as the use of implants as opposed to a patient’s own tissue. Part of the impetus for this research is to better understand healthcare disparities within plastic surgery.

I am also very interested in finding ways to better understand, and optimize, quality of life for people undergoing reconstructive head and neck surgery. Through development of questionnaires that involve patient input, I am examining the impact of reconstructive procedures on well-being — both physical and psychological. My hope is that these findings will improve clinical decision making and help us refine our surgical techniques.
