Background

A service renowned for its exceptional plastic and reconstructive surgical care

Coming from an ancestry of carpenters, I always knew I wanted to work with my hands. I loved science and art. Plastic surgery has really been an opportunity to combine these elements into a profession helping others.

I was drawn to plastic surgery in my latter years of medical school after watching the transfer of muscle from a patients abdomen to cover a bone over their ankle. It was a long procedure, about 8 or 9 hours. That was in 2005. I relive this same excitement each time I do a microsurgical transfer operation. Having now performed over 500 of these complex procedures, I do them efficiently and with a success rate above world standards. This is where a large part of my passion lies most in plastic surgery -  in microsurgery; stitching tiny blood vessels together under the microscope to restore blood flow to transplanted tissues.

​While I perform a broad range of plastic reconstructions, over time I am concentrating more on procedures that I enjoy and can offer my highest level of attention - skin cancer, breast reconstruction, and breast reduction.

My overarching goal is to nurture and expand a service renowned for its exceptional plastic and reconstructive surgical care within the community.
