WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a plastic and reconstructive surgeon specializing in head-to-toe reconstructive surgery after trauma, cancer, infection, and congenital disorders. I believe that every patient and every problem is unique and that no health issue can be treated in isolation. I focus on a patient-centered approach, and I understand the importance of considering the multitude of influences from a patient’s body, environment, lifestyle, and even family as they relate to a particular surgical solution. I am fortunate to practice at a world-class medical center such as Duke, where I can utilize the full spectrum of modern plastic surgical techniques in my practice, including microsurgery, regenerative wound healing therapies, and integration of multidisciplinary teams. I am dedicated to the well-being of my patients, and I strive to ensure that they are provided the very best care possible.
