Michael MercandettiM.D., F.A.C.S., M.B.A. Request An Appointment
- Facial Plastic Surgery
In the rapidly changing world of medicine, Dr. Mercandetti maintains a solo practice that welcomes patients and family members in a comfortable and warm environment. While the practice has adopted electronic medical records and kiosk check-in and other technologically advanced methods of communicating with patients, the doctor has maintained his style of patient care and dedicates the time necessary to get to know his patients and appropriately diagnose and treat as well as answer questions. His practice is a referral-based practice with ophthalmologists, dermatologists, general practitioners and other physicians in the community as well as many satisfied patients referring to him for his knowledge and expertise.
Dr. Mercandetti has more than 20 years of experience and has helped restore (for medical reasons) as well as rejuvenate and reshape the faces of thousands (for cosmetic reasons). He is a Board Certified Ophthalmologist who did a prestigious Fellowship in Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery as well as a Preceptorship in Facial Plastic Surgery.
While the scope of his care is primarily ophthalmic and facial reconstructive and cosmetic surgery of the eyelids and face, he has developed an extensive practice of skin cancer excision and post-excision wound repair and management. His skill set and extensive surgical experience has enabled him to transfer his skills to other areas of the body. Referrals continually come from medical dermatologists to Dr. Mercandetti for treatment of these skin cancers, many of which are rare types of cancers that involve complex repairs.
Dr. Mercandetti did his undergraduate work at Columbia University. He earned his Medical Doctor degree at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, after which time he attended the State University of New York at Buffalo for his Internship and Residency. After the completion of his training, Dr. Mercandetti was a commissioned officer and served on active duty in the US Air Force for four years. He was stationed at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida and rose to the rank of Major. It was during his tenure in the Air Force that he did a Preceptorship in Facial Plastic Surgery. He then went on to do his Fellowship Training in Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Illinois in Chicago.
