SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) October 18, 2018
Dr. Steven Sigalove, a board-certified plastic surgeon recognized internationally for his expertise in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, recently joined Dr. Robert Cohen (http://www.robertcohenmd.com), one of the top plastic surgeons in Scottsdale, AZ.
"I'm extremely honored and excited to have a plastic surgeon of Dr. Sigalove's caliber join my practice and provide patients with the expertise he's honed for the past 15 years in Chicago," says Dr. Cohen, medical director at the practice. "Dr. Sigalove and I became friends years ago as we were both teaching courses at multiple plastic surgery meetings. I gained tremendous respect for Dr. Sigalove because of his excellent results, his kind and humble personality, and his philosophy of placing quality and safety first. These values, and the fact that he is excellent at both facial and body aesthetic surgery, makes him a perfect fit for my practice and will expand the range of surgical options for my patients.”
The plastic surgery practice now offers the Phoenix-area residents three top board-certified plastic surgeons: Dr. Cohen, Dr. Sigalove, and Dr. Olson.
After receiving his Ivy League undergraduate degree at the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Sigalove earned his medical degree from the Finch University of the Health Sciences / The Chicago Medical School in North Chicago. He then completed a general surgery residency training at Rush Presbyterian Saint Luke’s Medical Center and Cook County Hospital in Chicago.
Dr. Sigalove says his experience in the Cook County Hospital emergency room treating trauma victims with severe facial injuries greatly influenced his decision to pursue plastic surgery.
"That ignited my passion and fascination with plastic surgery," he says. "I completed a plastic and reconstructive surgery residency at the University of Illinois, where I ultimately became chief resident."
In addition to specializing in breast augmentation and aesthetic body procedures at the Scottsdale practice, Dr. Sigalove also has incredible talent for aesthetic facial surgery such as facelifts, neck lifts, brow lifts and eyelid surgery. Recognized as a plastic surgery pioneer, Dr. Sigalove was selected as a key opinion leader by Allergan, one of the largest plastic surgery-related companies, and he provides education and hands-on training to hundreds of his plastic surgery colleagues. He's passionate about educating patients, as well.
"I believe in presenting multiple options to patients and, after discussing those options with them, formulating the best and safest surgical approach," says Dr. Sigalove. "I never hurry through consultations because I want my patients to feel both comfortable and educated about the decision they make."
Dr. Sigalove says the opportunity to relocate to the Scottsdale area has been a lifelong dream.
"I've always loved the outdoors," he says. "Mountain biking and tennis are among my hobbies, and I'm looking forward to exploring the natural wonders of the Sonoran Desert."
Dr. Sigalove lives in the Phoenix area with his wife Noemi, a breast surgeon at the Comprehensive Breast Center of Arizona, as well as their twin children, Isabella and Jackson.
