Gerald Minniti’s Journey

Dr. Minniti was encouraged to become a surgeon by the television character "Hawkeye Pierce", portrayed by Alan Alda on the very popular show MASH during the 70s. Even though Hawkeye projected an amusing, friendly persona, he was a caring and competent physician dedicated to his occupation. Dr. Minniti strives to replicate this in his workplace to make patients feel at ease and sure of themselves during their trying times. Before beginning medical school, Dr. Minniti studied at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York and watched plastic surgeons reconstructing the bodies of individuals who had undergone drastic procedures to improve their health.

When Dr. Minniti graduated from New York Medical College, he was at the top of his class. He was even inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. Afterward, he took his internship at the University of Southern California in General Surgery and completed his residency in General Surgery at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. Dr. Minniti also completed his Plastic Surgery residency at the same institution and then completed an aesthetic surgery fellowship with Baker, Stuzin, and Baker in Miami. His final year was spent at Brown as an Instructor in Plastic Surgery.
