Philosophy of Care

It's an honor to work with my patients, providing the highest quality of care in a compassionate and understanding environment. I seek to apply cutting edge research and technology, developing a patient centered treatment plan, to achieve the best possible outcomes.

Clinical Interests

Dr. Strong's clinical interests lie in both reconstructive facial plastic surgery as well as endoscopic sinus/skull base surgery. He is internationally recognized for his expertise in computer aided surgery (virtual surgical planning and visualization, rapid prototyping, 3D printing, intra-operative navigation, and intra-operative imaging) - applying these techniques for the treatment of maxillofacial trauma, sinusitis, and skull base tumors.

Research/Academic Interests

Dr. Strong's research focus is on reconstructive facial plastic surgery, rhinology, and skull base surgery. He studies minimally invasive approaches and computer aided applications in facial and skull base reconstruction. This includes the use of virtual surgical planning & visualization, rapid prototyping, 3D printing, as well as intra-operative navigation and imaging.
