Dr. Richard K Vanik 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 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 initial consultation made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Jung is professional. I was confident he would do a good job. I had a bbl in the past that I was not happy with. My butt was too big for my body and it made me very insecure. One butt cheek was bigger than the other and Dr. Jung was able to even it out and make me look more natural. I am very happy with results and would highly reccomend Dr. Jung. Also his staff are all very sweet and provide excellent customer service.
I underwent the AirScuplt Laser procedure and have been totally satisfied with the entire process. It is still too early to tell what the final outcome will be, but I can see changes after only two weeks. The staff was fantastic and even Dr. Vanik called right after the procedure to see how I was doing. They genuinely cared for my well being and made the process pleasant. Due to menopause and inactivity, I was getting thick around the abdomen area. Since having the procedure, I am motivate to start working out again and just be overall healthy. I must admit I was somewhat skeptical of what to expect but so far so good. There is some discomfort initially but each day gets easier as I recover. I would recommend the procedure to any of my friends that are trying to lose the stubborn fat.
Dr. Vanik is very experienced in the Lipo field. He was very detailed and took the time to explain the procedure during my consultation. He also answered any questions I had at any time for reassurance. I was nervous the day of surgery but he did an excellent job on my arms! I saw dramatic results after 2 weeks! I went back to work the next day! I am so lucky that he was my surgeon! I have no regrets at all! I use to dislike my arms, now I'm love them! I just got the green light to workout, so GYM, here I come! He shoots for the satisfaction of his patients. Yes, he does call after surgery personally to check on you. Thank you Dr. Vanik
My wife was referred to Dr. Vanik by her dermatologist. His office was nice and his staff was very friendly they made us feel welcome. My wife was very nervous for her surgery and he made her nerves worse. He has no compassion, gave her no reassurance, and would it hurt him to wear a smile? Not to mention he was late. The only positive was his staff we had a lot of questions about insurance and after surgery care. They answered our million questions effortlessly.
