Dr. Shipchandler splits his time between reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery at Indiana Health Physicians Facial Plastic Surgery & Skin Care.
Not all of the physicians practicing cosmetic medicine are completely outside of larger healthcare institutions. We got together with Dr. Taha Shipchandler to learn how he's juggles the cosmetic and reconstructive sides of this practice.
Name: Taha Z. Shipchandler, MD
Location: Indianapolis, IN
That's interesting: Dr. Shipchandler has performed over 27 facial reanimation surgeries on patients with facial paralysis- this is a surgical procedure no one else in the Midwest is currently performing. He also participates yearly in medical mission trips. He recently traveled to Eldoret, Kenya leading a team of surgeons on a facial plastic surgery trip. He preformed over 27 surgeries in 5 days operating on children with cleft lips and palates and resected a large parotid gland tumor providing all the reconstruction. He also travels yearly to Guatemala with a team of surgeons from Johns Hopkins.
