Dr. Rod has also taught a course to prepare other plastic surgeons to pass the oral board examination, which is the last examination a plastic surgeon must pass to become certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He has almost 17 years of training and experience in enhancing natural beauty with surgical and non-surgical procedures.

He also has just as many years of research experience under his belt, covering topics ranging from Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (pretty heavy stuff) to “the use of post-operative local anesthetic delivery systems on patients having immediate expander-based breast reconstruction.”

During his downtime, Dr. Rod likes to kick back and watch the University of Wisconsin football team hit the field; he was especially excited to attend the 2015 Outback Bowl in Tampa, Florida, and see his Badgers beat the Auburn Tigers. His other passions are cheering on the Green Bay Packers, golfing, running, and serving inner-city youth through his participation as a Member of the Wesley Community Center Board of Directors.


Dr. Rod did an amazing job repairing my torn ear lobe. The procedure and follow-up appointments were above my expectations. I can now wear earrings again!

Dr Rod is a very skilled surgeon. After losing more than half my body weight, I had several different procedures done. A lot of extra skin removal and reconstruction. My results were fantastic! His staff is so friendly and pleasant to work with. His nurse Julie is incredibly kind and helpful. I highly recommend this place.

This office is amazing. I've been here a handful of times and the staff is great, the office is clean and welcoming. The staff make the experience wonderful. They will answer all your questions.
