First, I would like to say that I am excited to join the Nose and Sinus Institute of Boca Raton and the practice of Dr. Nathan Nachlas. I feel truly blessed to share my experience in treating functional and aesthetic problems of the nose and look forward to working with incredible patients and colleagues here in beautiful South Florida.
During my training in New York and Chicago, I had the privilege of working side by side with mentors who generously shared the collective vast wealth of their clinical experiences with me. Foremost among these mentors was my fellowship director Dr.Dean Toriumi in Chicago, recognized by physicians across the world as a master rhinoplasty surgeon and thought leader in our field.
Throughout the course of this intensive one-on-one training experience, I came to respect the complexities of managing nasal aesthetics and function while studying techniques at the cutting edge of rhinoplasty surgery. To participate in this fellowship was a tremendous honor for a young surgeon, for which I am eternally grateful. My time in Chicago proved to be fertile ground for fostering a unique perspective on achieving balance in nasal surgery.
I met Dr. Nachlas during my fellowship year. When he told me about his concept of the “Total Nose” approach, it resonated immediately. Far too often is function compromised for aesthetics in rhinoplasty, and far too rarely are aesthetics adequately addressed in sinus and nasal functional surgery. I believe if we strive to continue to understand both aspects of nasal surgery, we can only do better for our patients. To join a practice that shares this philosophy is yet another blessing in my career. However, the greatest privilege of all will be to share my experiences and philosophy of nasal care with my patients.
I look forward to meeting you. It is my sincere hope that our practice and philosophy will help enable you to achieve your best possible health.
All my best,
Gregory S. Dibelius, MD
