“I am pleased to inform you that your work has now been accepted for publication in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Congratulations!”
— Rod J. Rohrich, M.D. Editor-in-Chief, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, January 2019

I’m constantly inspired by the possibilities that technological advancements offer to surgery, particularly in my own field of reconstructive plastic surgery. Innovation in technology is happening all the time, and modern medical practices benefit significantly from integrating these innovations into the way we meet a patient’s needs.

Artificial intelligence is at the leading edge of innovation. You hear about it in many fields now, and there are incredible opportunities for improving outcome analysis in facial reanimation using artificial intelligence. This is one of the many exciting advancements that can help people with facial palsy look forward to a day when they can expect greater control over their body and to experience the joy of performing the simple acts that most of us take for granted, like smiling.

My article was recently accepted for publication in the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal, and you can now find it there.
