Following completion of medical school and residencies at the University of Pennsylvania, I have had lengthy experience of both private practice and teaching while on the faculty of that institution.
My practice has focused on all aspects of cosmetic surgery and on reconstruction of the breast after mastectomy.
As the first Executive Director of the American Board of Plastic Surgery, I set standards for the education and certification of plastic surgeons. My certification is in both general surgery and plastic surgery.
The American Association of Plastic Surgeons, the oldest and most prestigious organization of plastic surgeons in the world, elected me as its President, named me a Distinguished Fellow, its Honorary Award recipient, and holds lecture endowed in my name on a regular basis.
I have many years experience in medical record review and presentation of expert testimony in both depositions and court trials.
