Emily F. Pollard MD, FACS
About the Practice
Dr. Emily Pollard has built a highly successful medical practice from skill, integrity, compassion, and her commitment to the tenets of a healthcare philosophy that puts the best interests of her patients first:
- Treat every patient as an individual - Any surgical procedure undertaken must address a patient's specific needs in the most effective, and safest manner possible.
- Treat the whole patient - The goal of plastic surgery should be to improve the whole person, not simply to create a more attractive body part. Deciding which surgical approach to take - or whether surgery is even the best choice - requires a careful consideration of physical, social, psychological, and emotional factors.
- The success of any procedure is about the patient, not the procedure - Best results require matching procedures and surgical approaches to individual patients. Patient satisfaction is always a condition of success.
Dr. Pollard has special expertise, experience, and sensitivity in managing the reconstructive and cosmetic surgery issues associated with all ethnic groups.
