I have been in private practice in West Central Wisconsin since 1984 and performed over 10,000 procedures related to my specialty. My services have recently been offered in East Central Minnesota and I established the St. Croix Valley Plastic Surgery center in 1998. My overall operative philosophy is to perform each individual procedure with the intent of not forcing a result that does not fit in with the patient's anatomical features. The result should be natural with no indications of the dreaded operated on appearance. I, therefore, feel that plastic surgery in my hands should be treated as an art form, not with the bold extravagant approach but with a reliance on he smooth, soft brush stroke with an appreciation and respect for natural beauty.

Our Eau Claire and St. Croix facilities are unique in that they offer an operative suite at each site and medical aesthetician to provide skin care consultation and full range of skin rejuvenation techniques.
