Specialties

Dr. Greg P Watchmaker has the following 3 specialties

  • Plastic Surgery

    A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.<br>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.

  • 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.

  • Orthopaedic Surgery

Excellent Care and Positive Experence

Dr. Watchmaker runs a very professional and well designed practice. The staff is friendly, helpful and welcoming. They provide prior information about the office location, parking as well as prepare you for all you need to bring to the office visit and what you should expect in return. Dr Watchmaker is most professional and friendly. He explained the medical situation and gave options. Leaving the practice I felt confident in the diagnosis, the treatment and the option to contact him again if there were further issues. I’d highly recommend him to others.
