Dr. Nagarkar's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Nagarkar "Born and raised in India, Dr. Nagarkar has been living and working in Texas for almost two decades. He has been fortunate enough to have studied and trained at some of the best institutions in the country. He graduated Magna Cum Laude in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Rice University in Houston, and after spending 3 years working as a management consultant with the Boston Consulting Group, went on to receive his M.D. from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Dr. Nagarkar completed six years of intensive Plastic Surgery training at UT Southwestern, the country's top-ranked residency program, absorbing hard-earned lessons from top experts in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Finally, he invested a year further honing his skills in Hand and Microsurgery with the world-renowned faculty at the University of California, Los Angeles. While at UCLA, he was part of the team that performed a highly successful hand transplant, as seen on ABC's Nightline. Although the sunny California weather beckoned, he and his wife have returned home to North Texas, and Dr. Nagarkar has rejoined his mentors and colleagues at UT Southwestern to set up his practice in Frisco. Dr. Nagarkar has had intensive training in all areas of Plastic Surgery. He specializes in hand surgery (e.g. carpal tunnel, arthritis, and hand/wrist trauma), reconstructive surgery (including microsurgical breast reconstruction), and cosmetic surgery (e.g. breast augmentation, tummy tucks, "mommy makeovers", eyelid surgery and facelifts). With his engineering background, he has a particular interest in emerging technologies such as lasers and other energy-based non-invasive technologies. Dr. Nagarkar is widely published on a variety of plastic surgery topics, with over two dozen manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals, as well as several book chapters to his name. He has presented at several national meetings, and in addition, regularly reviews manuscripts for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Nagarkar "There's nothing more frustrating than going to your doctor and not understanding what exactly is wrong or why it needs to be fixed. I'm not satisfied until my patients really understand their diagnosis, and the pros and cons of each treatment option. I hate jargon, and I love simplicity. If I can't explain something to a ten-year-old, it probably means I don't understand it well enough.

Hand surgery is a field where my dual loves of engineering and medicine come together. The hand is a beautiful piece of living machinery with hundreds of moving parts—and because we use our hands every day in every single activity, they can really take a beating. My focus in hand surgery is always on function—restoring your ability to use your hands every day without having to think about them. I want to understand your goals and desires, and to make sure I can deliver on them before we proceed. This type of pre-surgery analysis and planning is critical to getting an excellent result. "
