Call your doctor before leaving home if you think you’ve been exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms

Due to the presence of COVID-19 in our community, visitor restrictions are in place for all Duke clinics and hospitals. For your safety and the safety of others, we recommend patients do not bring a visitor to Duke clinics, if at all possible. If a visitor must accompany a patient, only one individual over 12 years of age is allowed. Patients and visitors will be screened for symptoms upon arrival. Individuals with flu-like symptoms are not allowed. View the complete list of Visitor Restrictions.

Effective immediately, Duke Health is prioritizing and rescheduling some non-emergent or non-critical surgeries, procedures, and appointments. Check our COVID-19 (Coronavirus) page for updates.

About Me

As a pediatric plastic surgeon, I strive to take the very best care of children that is possible. My areas of clinical focus include cleft lip/palate; craniofacial disorders (such as plagiocephaly, craniosynostosis, and hemifacial microsomia); craniomaxillofacial trauma; ear anomalies (such as microtia); functional and cosmetic rhinoplasty; obstetrical brachial plexus palsy; and vascular anomalies (such as hemangioma and lymphatic or venous malformations). I feel honored and privileged to be entrusted with the care of children, and I take this responsibility very seriously. Each child’s particular situation is unique. Therefore, in consultation, we will discuss your concerns and agree upon a plan that will yield the best outcome possible for your child.

Clinical Focus and Research
My Research Interests

My research interests cover the gamut of health-services research and include traditional clinical outcomes research, patient-reported outcomes, comparative effectiveness review, economic analysis, health-technology assessment, and management and policy studies. I have a particular interest in informatics, data analytics and visualization, and dissemination and implementation. My goal is to develop “metrics that matter” — standardized methods to assess outcomes that are meaningful to patients. I focus especially on improving integration of these data into the clinical workflow of multidisciplinary teams, where communication and coordination of care are critical for success.
