Dr. Mihye L Choi 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.

Compassionate, knowledgeable and skilled surgeon

Six months ago, at 41 years of age, I underwent a double mastectomy. When I made the decision to take this course of treatment, I assumed that disfigurement was inevitable and that I would never feel the same about my self image. I am writing this review because the reconstructive surgery that Dr. Choi performed on me was nothing short of a miracle. My breasts look more natural and have less scarring than the breasts of some of my friends who have had implants, lifts and reductions. I am forever grateful for the care and service she and her staff provided to me.

breast implant replacement

My old breast implants had ruptured and needed to be replaced. Fortunately, my dermatologist referred me to Dr. Choi. At my consultation Dr. Choi was patient and listened to what I desired but also offered her opinion. We came to a mutually accepted size and I had complete confidence in her skill, expertise and and artistry. Dr Choi did an amazing job! My breasts are natural and if I dare say - quite beautiful! I was not just a number to Dr. Choi. She truly cares about her patients and is an excellent plastic surgeon.

Full Review Rating Breakdown

I just had my "year anniversary" after having a double mastectomy. Being BRACA positive, I had to make the hard decision whether or not to have the operation to eliminate breast cancer from my life. After visiting Dr. Choi and meeting with her expert and most helpful staff, my decision was easy. I've never looked back and had the most wonderful experience in all aspects of my surgeries and as well as my overall recovery. Dr. Choi is not only an expert surgeon but she has special bedside manner that makes you feel like you are the only one she is treating. She spent a good amount of time with me to help put me at ease, explaining what I should expect and how I would look after my surgery. I would highly recommend both Dr. Choi and her office to any one who has breast cancer or to anyone contemplating having a prophylactic mastectomy because of the BRACA gene. They made my journey a much easier one that I could have ever imagined !!!

Exceptional surgeon

I feel so blessed that I have Dr Choi as my doctor. She performed my post mastectomy breast reconstruction and she is without a doubt the best in her field. She is meticulous about achieving an excellent result, compassionate, and really empathetic. An A+ surgeon. I should mention that all her staff I have encountered have been wonderful and exceptionally helpful-particularly Michele, Gina, and Elise.
