  • “I am honored to use my abilities to help children lead happy, healthy and active lives.”

As both a plastic surgeon and an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, I combine research and leading-edge clinical care to create a personalized treatment plan for patients with craniofacial conditions. I optimally restore both function (normal bite) and form (facial aesthetics), thus improving the quality of life for my patients. When surgery is needed, I intervene at just the right stage in a child's growth to ensure a successful outcome. I take a team-based approach to patient care, partnering with the family in all aspects of treatment.
