Dr. Leis' bio
This content was provided by Dr. Leis "Dr. Leis is educated, trained and skilled in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Her specialties are pediatric and adult hand surgery, reconstructive surgery, and aesthetic surgery. "My parents are both sculptors. I think of myself as performing surgical sculpting." Raised by two artists, Dr. Leis developed an eye for aesthetics and an ability to create beauty. Another love – science – also inspired her career. "There was an expectation in my family that I should do what I truly love. My humanitarian work in Mexico and Zimbabwe helped shape the idea that I wanted to use medicine to give back to my community. Sculpture and science is the crossroads of my passion and ability." She is grateful that she is able to combine these two important forces in her life to better her patients' lives. "This is what I was meant to do," said Dr. Leis. "In my work, no two cases are alike. Every day is fascinating and challenging." Dr. Leis uses tremendous amounts of creativity, problem solving, and skill to, as she says, "recreate what had been lost." When it comes to aesthetic surgery, Dr. Leis helps patients achieve their best self and gain confidence. "Quality of life is what my work is about," she says."
