Meet Dr. Baroody

Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Baroody first desired to become a plastic surgeon during his high school years when he was introduced to a plastic surgeon who showed him the dramatic effect one can have on quality of life by surgically restoring form and function.  From that time forward, he has never wavered through Cornell University, Upstate Medical Center, and Penn State Medical Center where he completed his residency in plastic and reconstructive surgery.  He now specializes in cosmetic surgery and also performs a wide variety of reconstructive procedures including breast reconstruction following mastectomy, scar revisions, and birth defects.  He incorporates techniques from his reconstructive practice to fine tune his cosmetic procedures.  In addition, the skills developed from cosmetic procedures provide excellent results in treating his reconstructive patients.
