As an experienced surgeon, Dr. Mark Crispin strives to provide his patients with a high level of care. He uses advanced techniques in plastic and reconstructive surgery to restore form after his patients undergo surgery for cancer treatment.
Dr. Crispin joined Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) in Newnan, Georgia, as a Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon when the hospital opened in August 2012.
“My goal is to understand the needs of each of my patients and to restore form after surgery with compassion,” says Dr. Crispin.
Dr. Crispin is board certified in general surgery and plastic surgery. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery and an Associate Fellow with the American College of Surgeons.
In 1987, Dr. Crispin received his Doctor of Medicine from Medical College of Georgia in Augusta. Both his internship and residency were in general surgery at Atlanta Medical Center, formerly known as Georgia Baptist Medical Center. Dr. Crispin completed this training in 1992.
Dr. Crispin had a two-year fellowship in plastic surgery at Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, which he completed in 1994. He then was chosen for a one-year fellowship in aesthetic surgery at the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital in New York City. He performed and participated in hundreds of cosmetic surgery procedures during this training.
In addition to working in private practice, Dr. Crispin has taught at Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital, as well as at numerous national and international plastic surgery meetings. He is a member of the AO International, which establishes the fundamentals in surgical principles for facial surgery.
While he performs a range of reconstructive procedures, Dr. Crispin has a particular expertise in breast surgery. He speaks at about breast surgery techniques at conferences and teaches courses on the topic.
Dr. Crispin uses the SPY Elite® System to evaluate skin viability and maximize results, and acellular dermal matrices to strengthen tissue weakened by cancer and treatment, such as surgery and radiation therapy.
For reconstruction, Dr. Crispin uses fat injections techniques to restore breast tissue affected by cancer and treatment. He also employs skin- and nipple-sparing operative techniques.
“My goal is to understand the needs of each of my patients and to restore form after surgery with compassion,” says Dr. Crispin. “Patients respond and gravitate toward the culture of caring at CTCA.”
Dr. Crisping is a member of the Southeastern Surgical Society, Association of Academic Surgeons, Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons and the Rotary Club. In his free time, he spends time with his family, flying fishing, attending church services and enjoying the outdoors.
