Dr. David A. Staffenberg: “As a plastic surgeon who specializes in treating craniofacial disorders in children and adults, I have two goals. One is to correct differences in the face and head that can affect a child’s growth and development. The other is to provide each patient with the best possible appearance. My work is done with an eye to the cosmetic result, even when the purpose of the surgery is reconstructive in nature. Everyone deserves to look their best, and I enjoy bringing creativity and artistry to each procedure.

During my career, I’ve had the honor of caring for children with the most advanced craniofacial differences, including craniopagus twins, who are born joined at the head and have shared skull bones. This work has included developing, describing, and teaching the staged approach for the separation of craniopagus twins, which has become the gold standard for such procedures.
