I have 8 years of experience, and specialize in the field of plastic surgery with specific knowledge in the areas of hand surgery, and microsurgery. I have published on such topics as necrotising fasciitis, scaphoid nonunion and toe-to-hand transfers. I have testified on attempted murder by strangulation and immolation and informed consent (in plastic surgery). I am an academic plastic surgeon working in a university setting. My prior PhD training helps bring a scientific rigor to my endeavors.
