Patient Care Philosophy

I believe that each patient must be treated individually. Especially for cancer reconstruction, the surgical plan must be tailored to meet the physical, social, and emotional needs of the patient. I focus on engaging my patients to learn about their goals and values, and provide an excellent outcome both functionally and aesthetically.

Clinical Interests

Oncologic reconstruction including breast cancer, sarcoma, melanoma, and other cancers, as well as lymphedema; peripheral nerve reconstruction including facial reanimation

Research Interests

Lymphedema treatment and outcomes; breast reconstruction outcomes
