Dedicated to you.

Dr. Hehr brings to CAPS a superior education from one of the nation’s most respected medical programs where he trained in the most advanced surgical techniques across the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery.

He chose a career in plastic surgery because it allows him to help patients improve their lives. “Plastic surgery allows me to care for patients with all types of needs, from cosmetic to those who require reconstructive surgery after cancer or trauma,” he says. “In all these situations, I enjoy the opportunity to learn about the patient, and together create a surgical plan that meets their goals through up to date, safe and effective surgical techniques.”

His decision to join CAPS was easy: he simply loves being part of a team. The opportunity to work in a thriving practice alongside such experienced doctors at the top of their field was perfect for Dr. Hehr.
