My job as a reconstructive surgeon is to put things back together and make people feel whole again. I’d say most people are surprised by what is available to them – whether we’re using implants or we’re using their own tissue.
As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Hood is focused on cancer reconstruction, body contouring and cosmetic surgery. He knows that plastic surgery (even just something minor) can positively transform a patient’s emotional and physical well-being. His goal is to offer treatments and procedures that help patients feel satisfied the rest of their lives. As an assistant professor at Rush University Medical Center in plastic surgery, he enjoys teaching and is a big believer in patient education.
