"It is a distinct honor and privilege to be invited to present this Endowed Lectureship, named for the internationally known and highly respected plastic surgeon, Dr. Joseph McCarthy."— Dr. Rod J. Rohrich
DALLAS (PRWEB) January 10, 2023
Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, a board certified plastic surgeon in Dallas, Texas , was invited to deliver the Third Biennial Joseph G. McCarthy Endowed Lectureship at NYU.
Dr. Rohrich delivered his talk entitled, 'Consistency and Excellence in Plastic Surgery - A Career Pathway', to the NYU Langone Health Plastic Surgery faculty, fellows and residents to expound upon the amazing contributions by Professor Joseph McCarthy while he was the chair of NYU Plastic Surgery. The presentation delineated the pathway for developing consistency and excellence in all of plastic surgery. Dr. Rohrich used his surgical specialty of rhinoplasty as an example to show how he has done this during his over 35 year career in plastic surgery.
This endowed professorship is named for Dr. McCarthy, the past chair of the department of plastic surgery at NYU. Dr. McCarthy is only the second chair of NYU Plastic Surgery in the department's 57 year history. The current chair of the Department of Plastic Surgery at New York University, Dr. Edwardo Rodríguez, facilitated this endowed lectureship to honor Dr. McCarthy's lifelong contributions to the field of plastic surgery and to the Department of Plastic Surgery at NYU.
Dr. Rohrich also delivered grand rounds, Innovations in Plastic Surgery that Transformed Cosmetic Surgery, in which he exemplified the numerous innovations that have been the hallmark and trademark of plastic surgery as illustrated by his development of a natural facial rejuvenation procedure - the Lift and Fill Facelift which is based upon discovery of the facial fat compartment by Dr. Rohrich and his colleagues. This discover has further enhanced the understanding of the science of facial aging and has allowed plastic surgeons to better understand how to perform a more natural facelift procedure based upon the specific aging of each patient's face.
