As a Plastic Surgeon I am privileged to be able to help people improve their self-image, and I find this a most gratifying experience. I appreciate the trust given to me by my patients and do not take this responsibility lightly.

The most important part of my patient relationships is communication. I make it my highest priority to listen to you and your objectives so that we can discuss and establish a plan that will best address your unique needs. The exchange between you and I requires me to provide you with the relevant background knowledge in a way that you can understand, so that you are able to make informed choices about your care. To help with this I endeavour to incorporate the latest cutting-edge technology into my practice, which maximizes our ability to communicate with one-another.

If you choose to undergo treatment of any variety, your safely and comfort is my greatest concern. I employ a broad variety of techniques before, during, and after surgery in order to prevent discomfort, and make your experience as pleasant and easy as possible.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me via email or call my office. I would be pleased to see you for a consultation, and look forward to meeting you.

Patient Comfort

It’s my goal to ensure your comfort and satisfaction at every touch point throughout your experience with my practice.  From the first time you contact us to your last follow up appointment I’m dedicated to delivering a genuine and exceptional service.  Pain management is a crucial element of making your experience as positive as possible. This is accomplished using methods of pain control and pain avoidance.

Some of the pain avoidance techniques used include: administration of long-acting local anesthetic at the time of surgery, and pre-medicating patients with anti-inflammatory and pain relief medication. Initiating these techniques before and during surgery effectively prevents the sensitization of pain nerves during surgery which reduces pain after the surgery.

Once surgery is complete we use several techniques for pain control to ensure your comfort. You will be prescribed several medications to minimize both pain and inflammation. Also, you will be given some medication to allow you to rest and sleep, which is crucial to allow your body to recover from surgery. Finally, we often use a mini pump that administers an ongoing infusion of anesthetic medication, thereby reducing or even eliminating discomfort. All of this means that your experience will be as comfortable as possible, so that you can recover quickly and get on with your life.


I feel it’s my duty to promote environmental responsibility. We all have a responsibility to minimize the impact we have on our environment. We have implemented many power saving utilities to reduce consumption in our office.

Our office is proudly paperless.  This dramatically reduces our use of paper products and also improves our ability to follow and manage your care.  It also makes it easier and more efficient to  communicate with your other caregivers. Patient records are purely electronic. The data is backed up on four levels (2 of them off-site), and encrypted for security. There are no paper charts, folders, or requisitions. All documents are digital and are printed only when required. By doing this we save about 120 Kg (265 lbs) of paper every year, which is equivalent to a stack of paper 2.4 meters high (8 feet)!  From power saving to biodegradable detergents, our office makes every effort to reduce our environmental burden.

Community Service

With the education, skills, and experience I’ve been fortunate to obtain, I believe I have social responsibility. My goal is to fulfill this responsibility by using my abilities in a volunteer capacity to help a broad range of people around the world.  My affiliation with Operation Smile has given me the opportunity to give back.  Operation Smile is a worldwide children’s medical charity that is dedicated to helping improve the lives of children born with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities. Operation Smile helps over 10,000 children per year in 42 countries globally.

If you are interested in this work, please feel free to inquire with me or visit the Operation Smile website.
