Plastic and reconstructive surgery is a marriage between form and function. My goal is to restore my patients’ self-confidence, whether through cosmetic or reconstructive procedures, so that my patients can look, feel, and function at their best.

I take pride in providing comprehensive plastic and reconstructive surgery care in a safe and compassionate manner. My area of expertise is microsurgery and reconstruction after breast cancer. I am one of the few plastic surgeons in Oregon who performs DIEP flaps. I feel highly privileged and find satisfaction in being able to help my patients during such an important time in their lives.

I also have specific interests in facial rejuvenation, aesthetic surgery of the breast, cosmetic and functional procedures after massive weight loss, and hand surgery.

Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery

When I am not with my patients, I enjoy skiing, hiking with my family, and cooking.
