Patient Reviews

A Very personable educated young man & most importantly a Great surgeon highly qualified & I would personally highly recommend him, he performed hand surgery on me and was very thorough before and after took time to meet me and explain exactly what he intended on doing and he followed through with just that & even after the surgery he took time to meet with me again to go over the progress I was making in recovery and any concerns he had. I wholeheartedly trust this guy and would go as far as to say I would trust my own child in his hands!

Reconstructive Surgery FAQs

What is reconstructive surgery?

Reconstructive plastic surgery is considered a surgery performed to correct facial and body abnormalities caused by injury, birth defects, aging or disease. The goal of reconstructive plastic surgery is usually to repair a body part after an accident, disease or to improve body function. Breast reconstruction and cleft lip are examples of reconstructive surgery.  Dr. Potts treats patients who need hand and finger reconstruction due to accident, injury or birth defects.  Dr. Potts works hard to restore the appearance, form and function of your hands and fingers.

Does insurance cover reconstructive surgery?

Insurance may cover in part or full reconstructive surgeries as long as they qualify as reconstructive surgery and not cosmetic surgery. As a rule of thumb, if surgery is intended to correct or improve a legitimate medical concern, then that is usually considered reconstructive.
