Dr. Joshua L. Levine's Biography


Biography of Joshua L. Levine

I am originally from Atlanta, Georgia. I attended Tulane University in New Orleans for my undergraduate education, and obtained my M.D. degree from the Medical College of Georgia.

I completed my general surgery residency at The Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center in New York. Within that time I did a two year research fellowship in pancreatic and gastrointestinal disease. During residency I was very fortunate to have met my wife Rita, and to have had three beautiful children. I continued at Einstein and completed my plastic surgery residency with Dr. Berish Strauch, a founding father of microsurgery.

Following my plastic surgery residency I elected to pursue further training in areas of particular interest to me, cosmetic surgery and breast reconstruction. For cosmetic surgery I completed a fellowship with Dr. Donald Wood-Smith at The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary. Dr. Wood-Smith is a world-authority on facial plastic surgery, and the cosmetic fellowship consisted of extensive training in advanced cosmetic procedures with New York's top plastic surgeons.

My family and I then moved to New Orleans where it was my privilege to complete a fellowship in microsurgical breast reconstruction with Dr. Robert Allen, the chief of plastic surgery at Louisiana State University. Dr. Allen originated and developed perforator flaps for breast reconstruction and is the leading authority on this technique.

After Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, we moved back to New York and I established my practice in Manhattan. I currently perform perforator flap breast reconstruction at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, Einstein Hospital and Montefiore Hospital.

Dr. Levine operates at The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary. This hospital specializes in advanced plastic surgical procedures and impeccable patient care.

Many patients coming to New York for surgery enjoy accommodations at the Miracle House. This is a luxurious full-service apartment designed specifically for cancer patients traveling to New York for procedures. In addition to top of the line comforts of home, it offers resources and support.

Dr. Levine is now offering breast reconstruction services in NJ at Hackensack University Medical Center and Saint Barnabas Medical Center and in Rockland County, NY.
