Even in first grade I was fascinated by all things medical (much to the dismay of my dog, upon whom I regularly practiced bandaging techniques) and knew even then that I wanted to (and would) become a physician. My experiences in medical school solidified my interest in plastic surgery and now, more than three decades after I first "hung out my shingle" in 1976 as the newest member of the Pittsburgh plastic surgery community, plastic surgery holds as much excitement for me and provides me as much enjoyment as it did then. Indeed, I would like to think that I am at "the top of my game", in terms of the intersection of my technical skills, my knowledge/experience and, most importantly, my clinical/surgical judgment. What follows is a summary of my education, training, licensure and medically related affiliations.
