LIBERTY — Colton McNichols MD, a fellowship-trained plastic surgeon with elite instruction from Johns Hopkins University, will introduce highly-specialized skills to the Northland and Northwest Missouri at the opening of The Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Clinic at Liberty Hospital on Aug. 9. The clinic will begin accepting calls to schedule appointments on July 19 at 415-7990. McNichols will provide advanced, nonsurgical skin and body care as well as complex surgical procedures using state-of-the-art technology. He will offer a variety of elective cosmetic services for both men and women and perform reconstructive surgeries in conjunction with the Breast Care Center, trauma services and other providers at Liberty Hospital. “Dr. McNichols brings tremendous expertise and a unique focus on whole-person care to meet what we know is a growing need for high-quality, specialized health care in our community,” said David Feess, hospital president and CEO. “The many benefits that come with hospital-based care also will instill confidence for patients.” After graduating from Rush Medical College in Chicago, McNichols completed a research fellowship at the University of Maryland Medical Center and R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center and plastic surgery residency at The Johns Hopkins Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, where he served as administrative chief resident. “I enjoy seeing how the immediate results of plastic surgery can positively impact the lives of my patients and help them gain confidence,” said McNichols. “The most rewarding part of my job is being able to provide a personalized solution to a person’s challenges, whether through reconstructive surgery, elective nonsurgical procedures or skin rejuvenation.” “Dr. McNichols is a skilled surgeon and a genuine asset to the specialty-trained breast care team at Liberty Hospital,” said Amy Patel MD, medical director of the Breast Care Center. “With the addition of his reconstruction specialization, we can provide a complete continuum of care for breast cancer patients in one location.” Fellowship-trained breast surgeon Elizabeth Butler MD of St. Luke’s Cancer Institute completes the breast care team. The Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Clinic will be located on the ground level (G80) of the Medical Plaza East building at 2529 Glenn Hendren Drive on the campus of Liberty Hospital. The facility features easy access from east and west entrances and free parking.
