Since I have readers from every state (and even many other countries), every so often I try to recommend a plastic surgeon from another region whom I can vouch for. For those of you in the Albany, New York area, I give my highest recommendation to Dr. Sanjiv Kayastha. I did most of my residency training with Dr. Kayastha, and if I can describe him in one word it would be integrity. He is a thorough, meticulous, honest, and talented plastic surgeon who performs the entire spectrum of plastic surgery, including hand surgery, cosmetic surgery, and reconstructive surgery. He may not be me (ha ha), but he is a damn fine surgeon.
