Tony’s research interests are mainly confined to the Pediatric and Aesthetic spheres. In conjunction with Dr. Jackson at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, he has examined the psychologic measures of parents faced with a fetal diagnosis of cleft lip or palate, the overall methodologies in harvesting iliac bone crest in children with alveolar clefts, the use of the Furlow Palatoplasty in various cleft types, and the psychologic implications of adolescents diagnosed with a breast anomaly. On the aesthetic side of things, under Dr. Ivona Percec’s mentorship, he has examined the patient population presenting for minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, the use of Protein Rich Plasma as a clinical adjuvant, and the use of the FACE-Q in patients undergoing botox. He prefers to conduct prospective, clinical studies with where the results will have an impact on patient care and counseling.
