Dr Cusick and his staff were both knowledgeable and professional. They addressed every question and concern that I had and checked on my progress frequently throughout the recovery process. I have never felt better in my life!

In 1981, he graduated from the University of Kansas with a B.S. in Business Administration and proceeded to get his Doctorate of Medicine from Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1986. He was also president of his medical class.    After completing General Surgery residency at Loma Linda University Medical Center in Southern California in 1990, he did an additional two years of Plastic Surgery residency at the University of Kansas Medical Center, where he still serves as a Clinical Instructor in the Department of Plastic Surgery.    Dr. Cusick is board certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery. He is also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. Within the Kansas City medical community, he has served as President and Treasurer for the Kansas City Plastic Surgery Society, and served on the Board of Directors and Finance committee of Saint Joseph Health Center.    His passion for service has led him to participate in more than 40 medical missions around the world. He performs reconstructive surgery on children and trains the local surgeons. His goal is to restore not only the children’s physical appearance and abilities, but also their self-esteem. He is one of the founding members of the Medical Mission Foundation, where he has served on the Board of Directors and is currently on the Board of Advisors.    Dr. Cusick’s passion is shared by his wife, Barbara, and their three sons: Brandon, Andrew and Christopher.
