Welcome to the Departments of Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Services at Kaiser Permanente Santa Rosa. Effective communication is central to our relationship, so we have created these pages to introduce our practice and some of the more common conditions we treat. These resources are a good starting point. When we meet, you and I will discuss which procedures are best for you. Here you can also learn a little more about my background and training.
