Careful thought, research, and consideration are all part of deciding to have reconstructive or cosmetic surgery. Most importantly, who should be performing these procedures? Plastic Surgery Associates of NJ, led by Dr. Gary A. Tuma, a double board-certified physician by both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery, can answer all of your questions and concerns.
After spending seven years in practice at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, Dr. Tuma moved his practice to Capital Health Medical Center – Hopewell four years ago. He brings his academic model of care to the Mercer County region in a convenient, comfortable, and accessible community setting. Patients no longer have to travel to Philadelphia or New York to receive this level of care and expertise.
Dr. Tuma specializes in cosmetic surgery of the breast, body, and face, as well as breast reconstruction and other reconstructive surgery following cancer, trauma, or other events. He uses state-of-the-art technology to produce 3-D images that can be manipulated to give the patients a real appreciation for what is possible prior to the actual surgery. Through the use of this technology it is possible to rotate the images, put them side-by-side, and have translucent overlays to help you determine what option is best for you.
Dr. Tuma explains, “patients can see what a reasonable outcome is for the procedures before I perform the surgery.” Plastic Surgery Associates of NJ is the only center to offer Vectra 3-D imaging in the region.
With Dr. Tuma you have an academic surgeon who takes pride in his work, and is located right in your backyard. You no longer have to travel to Philadelphia or New York for that level of expertise.
