Why Superior Training and Long Experience Benefit You

Dr. Kotler intended to study engineering, but a high school biology course shifted his course to the biological sciences. During his nine-year medical education and training, Dr. Kotler received experience in all aspects of head and neck surgery, including cancer surgery, facial reconstruction, sinus surgery, and microsurgery to restore hearing. Following residency and board certification, Dr. Kotler, a reserve Army medical officer for seven years, was called to active duty, promoted to Major and assigned to be Chief, ENT/Head and Neck Department, at the US Army Hospital at Fort Belvoir, VA,, one of the Walter Army Medical Center teaching hospitals.

Following discharge, Dr. Kotler was one of the earliest young surgeons to pursue additional fellowship training. He served under one of the country’s most experienced and respected facial cosmetic and rhinoplasty surgeons, Morey Parkes, MD.

He then was a junior associate with Jack P. Startz, MD where he advanced his skills in permanent non-surgical rhinoplasty, permanent non-surgical revision rhinoplasty, primary rhinoplasty, and non-surgical facial rejuvenation. After seven years practicing facial and head and neck surgery, Dr. Kotler decided to restrict his practice to only the five most important facial cosmetic procedures, setting himself apart from a field of facial plastic surgery to be recognized as a superspecialist with a purposely marrow range of treatments. Superspecialists, across the entire range of specialties, are Medicine’s longest-trained, most focused and generally most proficient practitioners.

What makes Dr. Kotler different from other cosmetic surgeons ?

  • Superior training including fellowship in facial cosmetic surgery
  • Extraordinary experience – military and civilian
  • Highest degree of specialization

After his time as a major in the U.S. Army Medical Corps and his training with some of the world’s foremost rhinoplasty surgeons, Dr. Kotler established himself as a super-specialized nasal and facial cosmetic surgeon – a degree of focus that few others can match. By purposefully limiting his practice to a small range of facial treatments, Dr. Kotler has been able to achieve a skill level and patient satisfaction unparalleled by less-specialized surgeons.
