      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Frank's Care Philosophy

      As a plastic surgeon I'm often asked to improve areas that are of concern to my patients. I believe that reality testing is some of the most important work I do. I want patients to have realistic expectations for their procedures as well as a good understanding of the recovery process involved. If patients go in to surgery understanding the limitations imposed by their unique anatomy, they'll never be disappointed. I tell all my patients that I'm available at all times for any concerns/questions
