NEW YORK, March 29, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. Mark S. Granick, Professor and Chief of Plastic Surgery at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School has been selected to join the Education Board at the American Health Council. He will be sharing his knowledge and expertise on Plastic Surgery and Reconstructive Surgery.

A Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, Dr. Granick utilizes his four decades of experience in the field of Plastic Surgery in his role as the Professor and Chief of Plastic Surgery at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School (NJMS). Established in 1954, the Rutgers New Jersey Medical School prides itself on educating students, physicians, and scientists to meet society’s current and future healthcare needs through patient-centered education; pioneering research; innovative clinical, rehabilitative and preventive care; and collaborative community outreach.

As the Professor and Chief of Plastic Surgery at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School since 2001, Dr. Granick’s day-to-day responsibilities include research, teaching and clinical plastic surgery. He has authored over 150 peer reviewed publications, edited 9 textbooks, and has written over 50 book chapters. Dr. Granick serves as one of the Founders and on the Executive Board of the Journal of Wound Technology. He has received NIH grant funding on biofilm research.

Following graduation with his medical degree from the Harvard Medical School in 1977, Dr. Granick pursued a residency in surgery at the Beth Israel Deacones Medical Center in 1978. He went on to complete a residency in otolaryngology at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary in 1982. Dr. Granick completed a residency in plastic surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in 1984. He is certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Though initially interested in ENT (Ear, Nose, and Throat) because of the wide-ranging spectrum of the head and neck pathology, Dr. Granick opted for the field of plastic surgery because the nature of plastic surgery is to use the principles of surgery in a creative fashion to individualize treatment for each patient. Looking back, he measures his success by the number and competence of residents he has trained. Dr. Granick attributes his personal success to continuously learning, outstanding training opportunities, and persistence.

Dr. Granick maintains a membership with The American Association of Plastic Surgery, The New Jersey Society Plastic Surgeons, The Northeastern Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and The Wound Healing Society.

As a testament to his success, Dr. Granick has been honored with The Global Live-Wire Medical Award for Best Clinician in the United States, the Best of New York/Best of New Jersey – 25+ times by Castle Connolly, and has been named the 2016 and 2017 Top Plastic Surgeon in New Jersey by the International Association of Plastic Surgeons

Considering the future, Dr. Granick hopes to expand the clinical practice and continue to improve his residency training program at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School.
