I entered the field of plastic surgery as it provides a unique combination of science and artistry in medicine. It gives me the opportunity to work with patients who are undergoing reconstructive plastic surgery, as well as cosmetic surgery, to enhance their lives. My focus on reconstructive breast surgery has allowed me to have a positive impact on the lives of my patients and develop long-term relationships with them.
As a faculty member of the University of Kansas Department of Plastic Surgery, I am privileged to advance the field of plastic surgery through research and education. Training our next generation of doctors and plastic surgeons allows me to always be current, challenged and optimistic for the future.
