AWARD-WINNING AND NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED BOARD CERTIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON WITH OVER 12 PLUS YEARS EXPERIENCE IN ALL AREAS OF AESTHETIC AND RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY.
A native Arizonan who grew up in Tucson, Arizona. I went to high school (Santa Rita), college (University of Arizona) and medical school (University of Arizona) all in Tucson. I then did a combined five year General Surgery and Plastic Surgery residency in St. Louis, MO (Saint Louis University). I returned to Tucson after completing my residency and took a position with the University of Arizona, University of Arizona College of Medicine and University Physicians Healthcare as an Assistant Professor of Surgery and Acting Chief of Plastic Surgery. I very much enjoyed working at a teaching hospital, instructing both medical students and residents. I also enjoyed sharing ideas and thoughts with fellow colleagues. I moved to Scottsdale, Arizona in the summer of 2007 and very much enjoy my solo private practice and being closer to family. My wife and I enjoy many activities together including golf, skiing and traveling.
“I love restoring the youthfulness to the face in a very natural way and making patients feel great about how they look without looking overdone.”
I so appreciate the life-changing transformation I see in 'mommy makeover' patients. I see them feel confident about their bodies again while wearing the clothes they used to wear and doing the activities they have always wanted to do.
