Dr. Itay Wiser logo: Itay Wiser Plastic Surgeon. MD. PHD.

Meet Dr. Wiser

I am a New York Licensed and an Israeli Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. I am an attending plastic surgeon and the Chief of Surgical Ambulatory Services at Harlem Hospital after completing two specialty fellowship programs: a reconstructive microsurgery fellowship specializing in aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital, and a Lymphedema surgery fellowship program at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

 

I hold a PhD in epidemiology and public health from the Sackler School of Medicine in Israel, which helps me to evaluate novel published treatments and technologies that can benefit my patients. I believe that my medical knowledge directly correlates with the quality of care I provide to my patients, and therefore, in addition to patient care, I am routinely involved in medical research.

 

I am the author of more than 50 peer reviewed scientific publications, and often present my own work in international plastic surgery conferences. My main research interest is patient reported outcome measurement, a new tool that puts the patient in the center of care.

 

I care for every patient like she or he is my first degree relative. I am responsible for my patients no matter the outcome, and without an expiration date. My relationship with my patients is built on mutual trust, honesty and setting realistic expectations.”
