Clinical Interest for Patients
As a Plastic Surgeon, I specialize in reconstructive surgery for pediatric and adult patients with clefts, traumatic injuries (i.e. facial fractures and soft tissue wounds) of the face, congenital or traumatic soft tissue abnormalities of the body or extremities, and reconstructive surgery after cancer. With additional training and Board-Certification as an Otolaryngologist (Ear, Nose, and Throat Surgeon), I have a special interest and expertise in nasal surgery, ear surgery (i.e. otoplasty and microtia), and cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the scalp, face, and neck. I have a Pediatric Plastic Surgery Practice at Children's Hospital Colorado which focuses on Cleft Surgery and Complex Reconstruction. My adult cosmetic and reconstructive practice at University of Colorado Hospital focuses on complex reconstruction and microvascular surgery after cancer surgery, mainly for patients with Head and Neck Cancer.

Volunteer Activities
Annually, I travel to Guatemala to the Moore Pediatric Surgical Center to perform reconstruction for children born with absent or malformed ears (i.e., microtia).

Information for Referring Providers

Clinical Interests for Referring Providers
I specialize in reconstructive surgery for pediatric and adult patients with cancer, clefts, and traumatic injuries (i.e. facial fractures and soft tissue wounds) of the face, head, and neck. My research interests focus on cleft genetics and surgical outcomes after complex microvascular head & neck / facial reconstruction, including the treatment for facial paralysis and after tumor surgery.

Research Interest for Referring Providers
My research activities have focused on the clinical epidemiology of head and neck cancer and the effectiveness of different reconstructive and treatment interventions for pediatric and adult patients. Issues of quality of life and cost-effectiveness have also been basic themes. My clinical research focuses on functional outcomes after head and neck reconstruction, complex clinical outcomes after pediatric and adult facial fracture management, facial reanimation, and the genetics of facial clefting. I have published or are in Press over 100 articles and book chapters in Plastic Surgery, Head & Neck Surgery and Cleft-Craniofacial Surgery.
