Dr. Agag's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Agag "Dr. Richard L. Agag is a plastic and reconstructive surgeon and the Chief of the Division Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. Dr. Agag completed his general surgery and plastic surgery training at Rutgers-New Jersey Medical School. He then continued his training at the University of Pennsylvania where he did a fellowship in microsurgical reconstruction. In 2010 Dr. Agag was named the Jerome P. Webster Fellow by the non-profit organization ReSurge International (formerly Interplast). The fellowship, granted to just one newly trained plastic surgeon annually, gave him the opportunity to spend a year providing reconstructive surgeries including cleft lip and palate, hand surgery, and burn reconstruction to children in developing countries in Africa, Asia, and South America. During this time he not only had the privilege to care for a myriad of children, he also had the opportunity to spend time working, sharing, and learning from plastic surgeons in these countries. Due to his extensive training and experience he performs a wide variety of reconstructive plastic surgery procedures ranging from breast reconstruction after mastectomy, to complex head and neck cancer reconstruction, to pediatric plastic surgery including cleft lip and palate repair. He also performs a multitude of cosmetic procedures for the breast, body, and face. Dr. Agag has a special interest and extensive experience in microsurgical breast reconstruction. Because he is fellowship trained in microsurgery he is able to offer all current options in breast reconstruction to his patients. This includes DIEP (deep inferior epigastric artery perforator), PAP (profunda artery perforator), stacked DIEP/PAP, TUG (transverse upper gracilis), and IGAP (inferior gluteal artery perforator) flaps. He also offers both two-stage tissue expander/implant and one-stage direct to implant reconstruction. Dr. Agag works together closely with the breast surgeons and his patients to determine what is the best reconstruction for each patient's specific situation. Dr. Richard L. Agag is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. "

I absolutely agree with the first review that Dr. Agag is extremely skilled, thorough, compassionate, and has a great sense of humor.
