  • Director of Facial Plastic Surgery at Ohio State since 2007
  • Best Doctors in America since 2009
  • Fellowship Director, American Academy Facial Plastic Reconstructive Surgery

I specialize in:

  • Otolaryngology
  • Athletic Injuries
  • Bell Palsy
  • Blepharoplasty
  • Chemexfoliation
  • Choanal Atresia
  • and 38 more


My expertise is in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, which includes rhinoplasty, nasal airway surgery, cosmetic surgery of the face and neck, Botox and fillers, skin cancer reconstruction, treatment of facial paralysis and facial scarring, as well as lasers and sports-related facial injuries. As a graduate of architecture and art history, I believe the visual nature of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery is well suited for my aptitudes. My work as a surgeon contributes to restoration of form and function for my patients. This is truly rewarding, whether the surgery is cosmetic or reconstructive in nature. At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, our breadth of multidisciplinary expertise offers the opportunity to treat unique and challenging conditions. When necessary, we are able to achieve excellent patient care and outcomes by working collaboratively. Ohio State is a great place to work. The resources here are boundless, and I was born and raised a Buckeye. In my free time, I enjoy the outdoors and travel.
