Meet Dr. Parcells

MESSAGE TO MY PATIENTS

A New Jersey native, I was fortunate to complete my plastic surgery training at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School (NJMS). It was during that time that I had the opportunity to work closely with Dr. Scott Spiro, and I am excited to have joined Spiro Plastic Surgery as his associate.

As a female plastic surgeon, I am passionate about advocating for women’s health and empowerment. My areas of specialty include aesthetic breast and body surgery as well as reconstruction of defects resulting from skin cancer, burns, and trauma.

I especially enjoy working with breast cancer patients, helping them to restore wholeness after lumpectomy or mastectomy through breast reconstruction. I believe every patient requires an individual approach to treatment, and for that reason I offer a variety of options for breast reconstruction.  I have created a website, www.bravebras.org, that serves to educate breast cancer patients on their reconstructive options.
