Always putting others first, Dr. Reuben was pulled into the field of medicine. "I wanted to come home from work every day knowing that I have made a difference and touched the lives of others in a positive way." Dr. Reuben continued his education by obtaining his medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin followed by a full 6-year general surgery residency at the University of Utah. Although he truly loved his time in general surgery, it was plastic surgery that was his true calling. Dr. Reuben completed his board certification in general surgery and then went on to pursue an additional 3 years of plastic surgery training at one of the most prestigious and well respected plastic surgery training programs in the nation – the University of Pittsburgh.
In Pittsburgh, Dr. Reuben had the opportunity to train under several of the nation's top plastic surgeons in the fields of both reconstructive plastic surgery as well as cosmetic surgery. It was here, under the guidance of Dr. J. Peter Rubin and Dr. Dennis Hurwitz, two of the most highly respected body contouring surgeons in this country, that Dr. Reuben developed a passion and keen understanding of the surgical care of the massive weight loss patient. The University of Pittsburgh is also heavily weighted in reconstructive microsurgery and it is also here that Dr. Reuben developed thorough training in muscle sparing breast reconstruction flaps.
I want my patients to have great self-esteem and a body image that they can be proud of.
