Thanks for your question. Absolutely I am board certified. I have a board certification from the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery as well as the American Board of Otolaryngology. I specialize exclusively in facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. My first five years of residency were specialized in significant surgery of the head and neck including major traumatic and neoplastic sugery. I then performed an additional fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. I currently write board questions for the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and administer the Oral Board. My complete qualifications are on the website. Please take some time to review them.
We perform surgery both in the office, at Central Park Surgery Center and at several major hospitals in the area. Office surgery consists of smaller procedures that can be carried out under local anesthesia with or without some oral sedation. Procedures requiring, or as requested by the patient, deeper sedation are performed at Central Park primarily and occasionally at a hospital. When we are at Central Park we use board certified anesthesiologists. Some of the hospitals also utilize nurse anesthetists.
I hope this information has been helpful. Please feel free to call or email with any further questions.
