David F. LaPatka, MD, FACS
What we are about is best summed up by David LaPatka, MD, FACS who heads our Facial Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics Center; “Promoting healthy, positive self-image is the most satisfying part of what we do. Our goal is to honor the gifts that nature has granted, restoring and highlighting each person’s unique beauty. That’s what makes a success.”
At Sansum Clinic, we have successfully performed thousands of surgical and non-surgical corrections of the face, skin, forehead, brow, eyelids, nose, cheeks, chin, and neck. We offer a wide range of cosmetic services; options range from non-invasive skin care products, to minimally-invasive soft filler injectibles, to complete outpatient surgeries. Dr. LaPatka and his experienced team of certified nurses, technicians and nurse anesthetists are dedicated to maintaining the highest standards.
