This month, I interviewed Dr. Patrick Byrne, who wears more hats successfully than one.
He is a renowned facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon specializing in complex reconstructive surgery of the face, head, and neck, microsurgical reconstruction, and facial aesthetic surgery.
Before joining the Cleveland Clinic's Head & Neck Institute, he was a Professor of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery and held many leadership roles while at Johns Hopkins. He was also involved in humanitarian work worldwide. Along with this, Dr. Byrne pursued his MBA in Business Administration from the Wharton School of The University of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Byrne and I discussed the evolution of his career. He goes into detail on what advice he would give to younger facial plastic surgeons. When it comes to choosing between private practice or academics, as this sometimes poses a challenge.
