Dr. David E Halpern has the following 2 specialties
- Surgery of the Hand
Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Hand surgeons also commonly work with patients who have fractures or broken bones from any kind of accident. If you're experiencing any kind of general pain in your hand, wrist or forearm that isn’t going away, a hand surgeon is probably your best resource.
- Plastic Surgery
A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

Highly recommended - reconstructive rhinoplasty for my wife

I rarely, if ever, write reviews to endorse a person or service but it wouldn't be right if I didn't fully articulate just how amazing our experience has been with Dr. Halpern. My wife was hit in the face by a softball which severely broke her nose, damaged her orbital socket, and damaged her right sinus cavity. Dr. Halpern himself said it was one of the worst fractures he'd ever seen in his 30+ year career. My wife is an actress so there was an obvious aesthetic concern in addition to our general fear and anxiety about how to handle this. Dr. Halpern recommended immediate surgery and we trusted his suggestion for this based entirely on the confidence he instilled in us when we met with him. The surgery was traumatic and invasive, especially having never gone through this before. But when he came out to the waiting room to update us, he informed us that the surgery was an absolute success. Since then we've certainly still had to manage her pain on an hourly basis but the most amazing and unexpected benefit we received was his constant outreach, availability and attention to my wife. Later he told us "I marry all of my patients" and that has absolutely been our experience. He's been available via phone anytime we've needed him regardless of the question. He even met us at the ER unexpectedly the other day to help alleviate some unanticipated intense pain that my wife was experiencing. This surgery was a huge leap of faith for us and it turned out to be a surprisingly comfortable experience which is completely attributed to Dr. Halpern's personal attention and care. I would absolutely recommend his service to anyone who is looking for a plastic surgeon in the Tampa area. I would even go so far as to make myself available to anyone who needs to hear a personal testimony about our experience or needs a reference of any kind. We are forever grateful to Dr. H and his team.

I went to Dr. Halpern after two 9 lb babies and 2 C-sections, one of them was an emergency C section. My one flat stomach was a wreck. No amount of exercise would get ride of the tummy role or the love handles on my back. Dr. Halpern did a series of tests and diagnosed me with a hernia and other post baby muscle and fascia damage. Dr. Halpern did an amazing job with my entire procedure and I am extremely happy with the results. I wanted someone with his background and expertise to help me get my abdomen back together via a mini-adominalplasty. His staff is also so friendly, helpful and amazing esp after the surgery and through the healing process. Other plastic surgeons wanted to just do lipo but I knew that this would not be enough. Dr. Halpern fixed my hernia and reattached everything where it was suppose to be in my abdomen. I am so thankful I went to an expert so that I only had to do this once. I highly recommend Dr. Halpern as he is the head of Plastics and Tampa General and also a hand surgeon.

The nurses were first rate, but the doctor experience was terrible. His ego will blow you out of the room, you get little to no time with the Dr. His bedside manner is juvenile, I'm incontinent, had an accident when I was sick and Halpern made a loud spectacle of it. I would not recommend, after talking with others in the many 2 plus hour waits, I switched. Top it off, I followed all his advice and didn't heal.
