Conditions Treated

Dr. Thellman says..

I was fortunate to be trained and work alongside some of the best and the brightest talents in plastic surgery during my years at Johns Hopkins  and Vanderbilt.  From breast and cosmetic surgery to burns I learned not only the latest techniques but was inspired to continue learning and developing new techniques.  Immediate breast reconstruction following nipple sparing mastectomies, short incision face lifts, neck lifts, drainless abdominoplasty, Botox, dermal fillers, silicone get implants, fat transfer, laser resurfacing, and others are just a few of the new technologies that have emerged and we have incorporated into our practice with our own individual touches.

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. Thellman says...

Dr. Thellman grew up in the Kansas City area and graduated from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore. After completing medical school he pursued additional training at Vanderbilt University Hospital where he completed residencies in general surgery, plastic surgery, and a fellowship in burn surgery. Following those 8 years of training, he chose to return to his home region to begin practice in Lawrence, Kansas.

 

Lawrence Plastic Surgery was established by Dr. Thellman in 1994. The practice grew steadily in size and reputation over the years, serving not only Lawrence but also the surrounding region. In the past 20 years the practice has treated over 18,000 patients drawn from 34 states and 7 countries who appreciate the quality of care and personal service that are the foundations of the Lawrence Plastic Surgery.

 

Dr. Thellman became attracted to Plastic Surgery as a specialty while in medical school. He witnessed the large variety of patients and conditions treated by his mentors and was impressed by the technical skill, creative ingenuity, and personal touch they brought to their treatment. Whether treating a severe burn, performing breast reconstruction on a mastectomy patient, or performing a cosmetic facelift each patient required a unique and individual approach to achieve a great outcome. Despite the time and rigorous training required to achieve board certification in both general and plastic surgery, Dr. Thellman chose to pursue a career in plastic surgery so he could do the work he loved.

 

Dr. Thellman also recognized that the best patient care could not be achieved simply based on the skill of the surgeon—it takes a team. Whether in the operating room, the hospital room, or in the office setting it takes a skilled and dedicated team of professionals to care for patients. He is fortunate to work alongside great individuals at a top rated community hospital and outpatient surgery center that help make sure each patient is treated with the quality of care they deserve. In his office he has surrounded himself with a knowledgeable and experienced staff that share his vision of expert care provided with a personal touch. Dr. Thellman credits his hard working, friendly and skilled staff, many of whom have been working at Lawrence Plastic Surgery for 10-15 years or longer, with the ongoing success of the practice.   Patients truly appreciate the care and continuity they provide.

 

Dr. Thellman is married and the proud father of 3 children. On the weekends, he changes roles (and clothes!) to work on the small farm where he lives just outside of Lawrence.
