Dr. Marcus' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Marcus "I am fortunate to have a profession that allows me to apply my skills to help children and adults who have challenging problems. My areas of clinical focus include cleft lip and palate, craniofacial surgery, functional and cosmetic nasal surgery (rhinoplasty) for adolescents and adults, facial paralysis, vascular malformation, ear surgery, congenital hand abnormalities, and birth-related brachial plexus injury. Often, I am asked how I chose this profession. To me, plastic surgery combines technical challenge with creativity and problem solving. My patients' problems are usually apparent to others and create a layer of issues related to self-esteem. To a child born with a facial disfigurement, surgery provides a change that is needed to grow up and feel like any other kid. In consultation, my job is three-fold: to listen to concerns, to study problems, and to provide accurate, unbiased information about the possibilities. I am motivated only by my patients' happiness. If I do not feel that surgery will realistically achieve my patients' goals, I have no reason to recommend it. To a parent, there is no such thing as minor surgery. The same is true for adult patients who are making an important decision for themselves."

    Nature of Complaint: INCIDENT LOCATION: DURHAM, NC /// PRACTITIONER COMMENTS: I was involved in a complex and severe cleft lip and palate case in which the infant died as a result of intracranial bleeding. After investigation, it was determined that the likely cause of the bleed was injury to a vascular structure by a fixation wire that was used for stabilization of the maxilla. There was no suit filed in conjunction with this tragic event. A report will be filed with the North Carolina Medical Board.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Marcus to friends and family. He is absolutely AMAZING! My son was the victim of a canine attack that resulted in massive disfigurement. Dr. Marcus and others he has hand picked have done the unthinkable. They have given my baby a face again.

I went to Dr. Marcus for a secondary rhinoplasty. My first surgery had been performed by another doctor 20 years prior and I was unhappy with my results. I had consultations with several doctors but had not found one I was confident in until Dr. Marcus. His attention to detail and the time he...Read More

I was referred to Dr. Marcus by another physician, who described him as a "meticulous" surgeon. That was also my experience. In addition, I found him to be a caring professional who explains things understandably; he listens and answers questions. My anxiety was lessened knowing he would be in...Read More
