Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon

He is the Chief of Plastic Surgery at St. John’s Riverside Hospital at Dobbs Ferry Pavilion and Westchester Medical Center. He also operates at the Institute for Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery within the Hudson Valley Hospital Center and The Mt Sinai Hospital.

Dr. Salzberg is best known as the pioneer of Direct to Implant and AlloDerm Breast Reconstruction. This type of breast reconstruction is replacing the traditional Tissue Expander Method, which required two surgeries with in-office biweekly expansion for several weeks in between. His new, pioneered technique allows him to put in a permanent breast implant with no need to expand or have a second surgery because of his approach in using AlloDerm to act as coverage and support of the bottom portion of the implant.

His renowned expertise with Strattice allows him to overcome some of the most challenging cases such as bottoming out, symastia, rippling and wrinkling, fold malposition and mastopexy/augmentation.
