Plastic surgery is Dr. Teitelbaum’s true passion. His primary focus is his patients and he augments that care by learning, writing, and teaching. Medical research and writing provides deep intellectual satisfaction in addition to further developing Dr. Teitelbaum’s skills as a communicator and surgeon. He serves as a reviewer of journal articles for both of the major plastic surgery publications and, importantly, has helped advance the state of plastic surgery for the good of all patients through his own publications.
