#214 Dr. Joseph Myerson

(Airdate: January 10, 2023) Maryanne interviews Dr. Joseph Meyerson, plastic surgeon & hand surgeon at Jefferson Healthcare. He initially wanted to become a veterinarian but med school & brain surgery seemed much more appealing. Then he discovered the infinite variety of the field of plastic surgery. It meant over 12 years of medical training & taking on a huge load of student debt. Dr. Meyerson doesn’t do strictly “cosmetic” surgeries. But he does repair faces that are damaged by fire or cancer. He does “reconstructions” literally from head to toe. He calls it “getting people back on the spectrum of normalcy.” His work inspires gratitude from patients and their families.
