In Dr. Green's own words
I have over 30 years of experience in the practice of cosmetic and reconstructive
plastic surgery. After Rutgers Medical School, my first 6 years as a physician
were at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in the city of New York.
I completed my general surgery residency, plastic surgery residency and
fellowship training at this medical center. I was a clinical instructor
for Columbia University during this time. Although I have a broad background
in all aspects of plastic surgery, my focus while in New York was on microsurgical
and flap reconstruction of the breast and body. In 1992, I moved to Humboldt
County, California to start a private practice, join a community and raise a family.
I first practiced in partnership with Dr. Russell Pardoe for 8 years, and
then moved to solo private practice until 2016. I joined St. Joseph Health
Medical Group in November 2016. managedI 10,000 cases during my practice
time, 70% reconstructive and 30% cosmetic surgery. Breast reduction, breast
cancer reconstruction, facial cancer reconstruction, face lifting, post
bariatric body contouring are my most frequently performed surgeries over
the breadth of my career.
I approach all patients as both a scientist and an artist. All surgery
is aesthetic and restorative. I am proud to regularly receive referrals
from former patients and colleagues in Humboldt, Mendocino, Del Norte,
Trinity and Curry counties.
St Joseph Hospital has been my primary hospital for my entire career. I
have served as Chief of the Medical Staff, Member of the Board of Trustees,
multiple roles on the Medical Executive Committee, Chairman of the Credentials
Committee, and many others. I am certified by the American Board of Plastic
Surgery, member of the American Society of Plastic Surgery, a member of
the California Medical Society, and a member Humboldt- Del Norte Medical
My wife and I live in Arcata, California where we have raised two well
rounded and accomplished children. We are all sailors, surfers, scientists,
backpackers, snowboarders, dancers, travelers, and humanitarians.
