He is often referred to as "The Doctors' Doctor." Triple board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the American Academy of Otolaryngology, Head & Neck Surgery, and the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Kridel is consistently named among the numerous Top Doc lists, including the acclaimed Castle Connolly Top Doctors, an accomplishment achieved by roughly only 2% of physicians. Dr. Kridel specializes in procedures for the face and neck, exclusively. He has pioneered surgical techniques for rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty, facelift and septal perforation that are now taught in medical schools across the country. Regarded as "the" leading expert in facial plastic surgery, patients, including physicians and their family members, come from all over the world to have Dr. Kridel perform their surgery. He is the most noted, of only a few specialists, in the U.S. with an extremely high success rate for complex septal perforation surgery. Dr. Kridel also has extensive experience performing many other cosmetic procedures such as otoplasty, eyelid surgery, CO2 laser resurfacing, hair restoration, and other leading-edge, non-surgical treatments. Dr. Kridel understands that patients need individualized care based on their goals and expectations to achieve the most natural results. Through his extensive experience and outstanding surgical skills, Dr. Kridel leads his patients through this highly personal process of rejuvenation, whether it is a minimally invasive treatment or a complete cosmetic transformation.

His unparalleled surgical expertise and compassion puts his patients at ease so they can embark on their surgical journey with confidence.
