Physician Detail


Dr. Grant has been Chief of Plastic Surgery for the combined Divisions of Plastic Surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center since April of 2006. Board-certified in general surgery and plastic surgery, Dr. Grant is a member of the American Association of Plastic Surgeons (AAPS), the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). Dr. Grant was named by both Castle Connolly and US News & World Report in 2011-2012 as one of the "Best Doctors in America".

After receiving his MD degree from Albany Medical College, Dr. Grant chose to specialize in plastic surgery and completed his general surgery and plastic surgery residencies at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell. Dr. Grant's outstanding work and commitment to plastic and reconstructive surgery has resulted in leadership positions at North Shore University Hospital, NYU School of Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia and NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell. He is also Associate Clinical Professor of Surgery at Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons and an Adjunct Associate Professor of Surgery (Plastic Surgery) at Weill Cornell Medical College.

Dr. Grant's expertise has made him a sought-after expert not only for local and national radio and television appearances but also magazine and newspaper articles and interviews. He is included in the annual Castle Connolly Guide of America's Cosmetic Surgeons and Dentists and has been named to New York Magazine's list of Best Doctors in New York. "Plastic surgery is about quality of life", says Dr. Grant, "and about a woman's overall health and well-being. I partner with each and every one of my patients to identify and reach that balance of inner and outer beauty that is theirs and theirs alone, and to maintain that balance through every life stage."
