Fellowship-trained surgeon brings aesthetic and reconstructive expertise to Geauga County community

GEAUGA COUNTY – Devra Becker, MD, FACS, Assistant Professor of Plastic Surgery at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, joined University Hospitals (UH) Geauga Medical Center on September 1.

Dr. Becker graduated from Washington University School of Medicine and joined University Hospitals in 2008. She is fellowship trained in facial and craniofacial surgery and brings a full array of general and specialized aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery techniques to the hospital and the Geauga County community. “Facial surgery encompasses facelifts, rhinoplasty, migraine surgery as well as some cancer surgery with reconstruction – anything involving soft or bony tissue from the neck up,” says Dr. Becker. “Craniofacial techniques involve more complex bony tissue reconstruction.”

Dr. Becker’s range of surgical specialization also includes breast surgery and complex nerve reconstruction. “I have a great deal of interest in and experience with nerve surgery which requires a delicate technique,” says Dr. Becker. “Many of my referrals are from neurologists with patients who have carpal tunnel syndrome and have failed conservative, nonsurgical management of their condition.”

The surgical expertise Dr. Becker now offers at UH Geauga Medical Center requires frequent collaboration with other departments at the hospital, especially the UH Neurological Institute and the Center For Bariatric Surgery. “One of the reasons I came to UH Geauga Medical Center is to offer patients body contouring following massive weight loss as a result of bariatric surgery, and that means I get to contribute and be an engaged member of the team,” says Dr. Becker. “I like team-based care, and everywhere I look at UH Geauga Medical Center, everyone works together. Primary care physicians are engaged with specialists. That collaboration is what I like about medicine, and it’s what I love about this hospital.”

“Dr. Becker brings a host of new, exceptional surgical capabilities to our hospital and to our community,” says M. Steven Jones, President, UH Geauga Medical Center. “We look forward to all the ways her expertise will enhance our already outstanding surgical, neurological and bariatric services and more immediately address our patients’ diverse health care needs.”

Currently, Dr. Becker consults with patients and performs procedures at UH Geauga Medical Center one day every two weeks. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Becker, called UH Geauga Medical Center at 440-285-7757.
