Dear Dr. Naderi,
In answer to another question you stated that Burget, Menick and Baker were the best at nasal reconstruction. Perhaps, thats reflected in their fees and it may also take time to get in to see them. I need a reconstruction of a botched flap that followed Mohs more than two years ago. I’m not sure if it can be salvaged or if it would have to be done all over again. I need to have this done soon because, among other reasons, my insurance will be expiring at the end of the year and I don’t have a lot of money either. So please tell me who, in your opinion, are some other nasal reconstruction surgeons that, although they may not be the very best, are also very good, perhaps up and coming surgeons that have extensive experience with this?
Thanks for your reply!
I understand your situation. Try making an appointment with Dr. Patrick Byrne at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. He is the head of the Facial Plastics division there and he is trained in free flaps as well as other nasal reconstructions. I cannot tell you to have him do your surgery but he would be a good doctor to see as a starting point and see what he has to offer then you can make the final decision.
I wish you luck.
