Dr. Herbert A Ecker Jr has the following 2 specialties
- 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.
- 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.

He and his staff have no interest in performing elective surgeries or anything that doesn't pertain to hand surgery. Unfortunately I wasn't aware of that until after my botched augmentation. At follow up my questions were ignored, my pain was disregarded and now I have to pay to have his mistakes fixed. If he would have just told me he wasn't interested in my cosmetic surgery or he couldn't perform the surgery because he wasn't qualified or whatever the case may have been would have gone elsewhere.
My daughter went to Ecker after a traumatic fall from a second story window while sleepwalking. She needed reconstructive surgery of her nose. Was told her septum was deviated and the nose was shattered. WE told him AND his staff day of consultation AND day of surgery that our daughter had a severe adhesive allergy. Pre-op team laughed and asked what we expected them to do "wrap her face in gauze?" (seriously thought they were kidding). She came out of surgery with ..... you guessed it.... tape and adhesive on her face. Surgery was 7/2 and by 12:30p on 7/3 she was already swollen, red and blistering. Made several calls to the office and felt I wasn't taken serious. By 8:30 that evening I had finally received a call from Ecker himself who told me to "give her 100mg of benedryl and ride it out till Monday." At 10:30p we went to the emergency room of a different hospital and were told that if we had "ridden it out", she would have been dead by Monday of asphyxiation. Ecker NEVER offered an apology, offered to compensate us for the additional ER charges, his offering was to turn us into collections while we fought him through the insurance company and state licensing board. I would NEVER recommend him to anyone. He is smug and pampas. Doesn't care about his patents and his bed side manner is awful. oh and her septum was NEVER fixed. Nose is crooked.
