About me

For as long as I can remember, I had a desire to make a difference. As a professor of plastic and reconstructive surgery, I seek to make a difference for those I treat and those I work with. I was drawn to plastic surgery because it allows me to treat patients with various conditions that affect function or appearance as a result of birth defects, trauma, illness and aging. I specialize in cosmetic surgical procedures, breast reconstruction and reduction and skin cancer. As a provider, I aim to provide care that is both compassionate and individualized to each patient.

I earned my medical degree from the Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Thereafter, I completed a general surgery residency at the Medical College of Virginia (now the VCU Medical Center) in Richmond. Then, I completed a plastic and reconstructive surgery fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh and the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. Previously, I have served as an assistant professor of surgery in the UF Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery from 1995 to 2000, followed by working in private practice in Gainesville for 10 years before returning to UF in 2010.

Since 1995, I have been practicing as a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. I am a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and serve in a variety of leadership roles in regional and national plastic surgery organizations. Additionally, I have lectured nationally and internationally on the topics of aesthetic surgery and breast surgery. Many instances, I have been recognized by various organizations as Top Doctor or among Top Plastic Surgeons.

When I am not practicing at UF Health Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics Center, I enjoy spending time with my family. Also, I enjoy staying active by backpacking, cycling and doing strength training.
