David M. Otterburn, MD uses state-of-the-art technology and microsurgical skills to provide advanced breast reconstruction procedures to breast cancer survivors at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City.

A leader in his field, Dr. Otterburn is board certified in plastic surgery and general surgery. He is currently one of the few surgeons performing free flap breast reconstruction with Resensation®, a surgical technique that has the potential to restore sensation to a woman’s chest after a mastectomy.
