Dr. Michael W Born has the following 3 specialties

  • Surgery
  • 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.

Used him before for a hand problem. His wife rudely interrupted that procedure. But I decided to give him another chance.I Needed a procedure that had to be done by the end of the year for insurance reasons. Called beginning of September. They wouldn't take me until November. Then they made me wait another 3 weeks for another appointment. Went in expecting to schedule the procedure. They handed me a name of another doctor, they didn't want to be bothered My husband needs hand surgery. Needless to say we will never go back to this office!!!!!!!!

Couldn't be happier..

Dr Born was recommended by a relative who worked with him on a surgical rotation in medical school; I could not be happier with my decision to have my procedure performed by Dr Born. All my life past puberty I have been self conscious about my breasts when finally I had had enough. Dr Born made me feel comfortable and his bedside manner is warm and welcoming. He was thorough and I went into the surgery confident in his abilities. I live in Philadelphia and travelled to and from York (about a 2 hour drive) to see him specifically. Him and his office staff were extremely accommodating and always went above and beyond for my appointments; the morning after my surgery, Dr Born came early to check my post-op status so I could be on my way back to Philadelphia earlier than planned, especially considering it was my birthday. I don't know many doctors who would come out of their way, earlier than necessary, solely for the patient's convenience. Easiest review I have had the pleasure of writing.

Best Decision/Best Dr

I recently had R breast reduction with Dr. Born. During my pre-op, I was nervous and almost talked myself out of it. Dr. Born reassured me of the results and took the time to address my concerns. In the hospital during and after the surgery he took his time talking with me and was also very respectful to the hospital staff. I quality you don't often see in drs. On the day of my discharge, a nurse assisting him; he told her thank you. I'm still swollen/tender and can only imagine my results...but so far no regrets! Thank you Dr. Born - this was 15 years in the making.
