With decades of experience, Dr. Andrew Elkwood and Dr. Tushar Patel, pioneers in nerve microsurgery and nerve decompression, have
developed a far-reaching reputation by o;ering the most advanced aesthetic and cosmetic surgery procedures. They have appeared on
shows such as Good Morning America discussing cosmetic surgery—particularly the “mommy makeover.” They are also experts in
reconstructive surgery for trauma, breast cancer and other conditions.
“Our mantra when helping patients decide on treatment has always been ‘safe, simple, natural,’” says Dr. Elkwood. “Our patients’ health
is most important. After that, we try to keep treatments as simple as possible, to achieve a natural look that they will be happy with.”
The doctors are also part of the Institute for Advanced Reconstruction, in partnership with the Center for Treatment of Paralysis and
Reconstructive Nerve Surgery at Jersey Shore University Medical Center, which attracts both national and international patients.
Dr. Elkwood, founder and director of the group, is a world-renowned expert in nerve reconstruction surgery for peripheral paralysis.
Dr. Patel works with the Cancer Institute of New Jersey and specializes in orbital decompression for patients with Grave’s ophthalmopathy.
