Overview

When you get a cosmetic or reconstructive procedure, you want to know you’ll be happy with your results. In the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Northwell Health, our close-knit team of surgeons draws from a deep pool of combined experience, allowing us to perform a number of advanced procedures with unmatched accuracy and detail.

We offer state-of-the-art care for repairing and rebuilding abnormal structures of the body caused by birth defects, developmental problems, trauma (accidents), infection, tumors and disease, as well as cosmetic and elective procedures. In addition, our team of Northwell plastic surgeons specializes in microsurgery, a technique in which tissue is transferred from one location to another by sewing together arteries and veins that measure two millimeters and smaller. This allows incredible flexibility in reconstructing traumatic and oncologic defects and helps avoid the need for prosthetics, resulting in lower infection rates and more natural results.

Best of all, we offer services throughout Suffolk County, Nassau County, Staten Island, Manhattan and Westchester County so our patients can stay close to home.
