Dr. Widder strives to ensure:

Dr. Widder frequently says, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This statement encapsulates Dr. Widder’s philosophy of making patient safety priority number one. While some other surgeons may cut corners or perform multiple procedures simultaneously, Dr. Widder only focuses on conducting one operation at a time. This allows for the very best results with a significantly lower chance of revision surgeries. However, he will combine surgeries if patient desires or if he determines it will be safe for the patient.
