CONVERSATIONS WITH DR. ROBERT KOTLER
"Everybody wants the most specialized doctor – especially when it comes to his or her face. There are several reasons. I would like to share with you the reasons why I chose to limit my practice to cosmetic surgery of the face and neck, exclusively. It was a very important decision. Plastic surgery of the human body is too broad and complex for any one doctor to master all portions of it. I n surgery, as in many disciplines in life – the best results occur when a team of highly skilled and specialized individuals perform the same procedure(s) on a nearly daily basis. Repetition breeds perfection, like a ballet or an orchestra. Over 35 years ago, as a medical student, it became obvious to me that modern medicine was expanding and improving very quickly, primarily because of specialization. Hand surgery, burn surgery, heart surgery, artery and vein surgery were beginning to be separated from other procedures and practiced as a "single specialty." Then, I realized that if I were to excel at my chosen work, I would have to be as specialized as possible. It was easily recognizable that the more specialized the doctor, the greater the likelihood of good results for the patient. Hence my decision to pursue a course of education and training that would allow me to bring a high degree of skill to my patients. I did not want to be the "jack of all trades, master of none." On the contrary, I wanted to excel in the performance of just a few procedures. In short, I wanted to be a "superspecialist" because it would be better for my patients. That meant ultimately limiting my practice to six or fewer procedures within a specific region of the body. A select group of operations considering that one local hospital recognizes 136 different procedures that are considered within the realm of “plastic surgery "So, patients "get it." They sense, intuitively, that a "super-specialist" is more likely to perform – for them – at the highest level, rather than the "I do everything" doctor. That mastery comes only with focus, dedication and long study. No different than that required for greatness by a piano virtuoso or a football place kicker."
A PERSONAL DECISION MADE
"Since I enjoyed the face and neck work most, I decided to forego "body surgery." No hand surgery, no breast or body sculpturing. No treatment of burns. No correction of birth defects or major cancer surgery. While these services were important, certainly my colleagues might likewise specialize in those. As my plan evolved, I felt it was best not to perform accident or Emergency Room work, as they would detract from my best ability for those elective scheduled procedures that I preferred to perform. I didn't want to be up all night in an Emergency Room and not be well rested for someone's face lift the next morning. I would be left to do what I enjoy doing most – improving people's appearance.In summary, as I jokingly tell my patients: "I am sorry but we don't do body and fender work". And patients understand, instinctively, the importance of choosing a doctor whose focus matches their specific need. Now, with increasing frequency, we hear patients say: "I am glad I came to you. I wanted a cosmetic surgeon who doesn't 'do everything,' who specializes in only the face."
