Cosmetic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgery

What is a Plastic Surgeon?

The term “plastic” comes from the Greek word “plastikos” meaning to mold or give form. Plastic Surgery does just that – it gives new form to the human body. The specialty includes two kinds of procedures – Reconstructive Surgery, or procedures done to repair birth defects and deformities caused by accidents and disease; and cosmetic surgery, including facelifts, nose reshaping, fat suction, and other procedures done to enhance appearance.

A plastic surgeon’s education includes 4 years in medical school, full training in all aspects of general surgery (usually 5 years) and special fellowship training (at least 2 years) in plastic surgery. Both Dr. Barrientos and Dr. Potts have completed fellowship training in their area of expertise. Dr. Barrientos completed a Fellowship in Wound Care and an additional Pediatric Craniofacial Fellowship. He specializes in cosmetic plastic surgery as well as pediatric facial reconstruction. Dr. Potts completed an Orthopedic Hand Surgery Fellowship and he specializes in hand surgery and reconstruction. Slocum-Dickson Plastic Surgery Department provides comprehensive care for all plastic surgery patients in Central New York and beyond.

What is a Plastic Hand Surgeon?

Hand surgery is a broad term that encompasses a wide range of procedures. Plastic surgeons who perform hand surgery aim to restore function to the hand and fingers. However, hand surgeons also strive to make the hand appear as natural as possible.

This highly specialized surgery can treat ailments that cause pain and impair your wrist and finger strength, function, and flexibility. Surgery aims to restore function to fingers and hands injured by disease, trauma, and to correct birth defects. The goal is to restore hand and finger functionality to near normal and to reduce pain.
