WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a Professor of Plastic Surgery at Duke University and a Professor of Plastic Surgery at the University of Heidelberg, Germany. I have a PhD degree and a Master of Health Sciences (MHSc) degree. I have a part time affiliation with the Durham VA Medical Center serving our veterans and their families. I enjoy working in an academic environment and being able to cover a variety of plastic surgery cases. My main interest is plastic-reconstructive surgery, including repair of the abdomen and chest, breast, extremities, and head and neck, including microsurgery. My passion is to work with patients who experienced a significant weight loss, such as after gastric bypass surgery, which are commonly known as "body contouring" procedures. When on call, I mainly deal with facial and upper extremity trauma-related injuries.
