- 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.

Dr. Campbell performed a large muscle and skin graft on my 22 year old brother after a car accident. My brother had a crushed lower leg. Dr. Campbell took one of his large back muscles, Latissimus Dorsi and attached it to his lower leg during an average of 12 hour+ surgery. This was likely Dr. Campbell’s FIRST surgery at EMMC or one of his first, as he was just announced as a new surgeon. We did not know this at the time. Upon awakening from anesthesia, my brother was in an extreme amount of pain, which they were trying to manage. Due to the prolonged time under anesthesia, my brother was extremely confused and agitated that whole night and next day. Nurses were continually checking by ultrasound, the pulse of the muscle graft. Shortly after, my brother’s antibiotics were discontinued BY COMPUTER ERROR. Dr. Campbell did not renew the antibiotic order and none of the nurses noticed. Because of this, the muscle and skin graft became infected and DIED. The whole muscle and skin graft had to be removed and thrown away. The hospital verbally admitted that the order should have been renewed but EMMC covered that up in the medical report. This incident caused my brother to be in the hospital for an extra 2-3 weeks, when he had already been admitted for several weeks. A more experienced surgeon was then brought in to perform a second muscle and skin graft. This surgeon performed the graft by taking my brother’s calf muscle posteriorly and transferring it to the front of his leg. This was a much shorter surgery and much more effective. Dr. Campbell performed the wrong kind of muscle graft on my brother which caused his extreme pain, extended hospital stay and permanent loss of his latissimi dorsi muscle. I want everyone to know that Dr. Campbell is an extremely inexperienced plastic surgeon.
