About Pathy, Vinod
VINOD V. PATHY, M.D., F.A.C.S., earned his Bachelor of Science Intensive Degree from Yale University in biology, completing a senior-year thesis in neurobiology. He received his medical degree from Temple University School of Medicine, and completed his residencies in general surgery and plastic surgery at Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City.
Board-certified in both plastic surgery and general surgery, he specializes in breast and body procedures, with a with an emphasis on breast reconstruction, while being the Director of Breast Reconstruction Services at the William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich.
He is one of only a few select plastic surgeons in Connecticut to perform microvascular breast reconstruction, including the DIEP (Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator) flap, which utilizes only a patient’s abdominal skin and fat to reconstruct the breast, without utilizing muscle. The results include a long-lasting natural-looking breast, limited discomfort, and expedited recovery. While many patients are candidates for this type of cutting-edge reconstruction, it is a rather exclusive procedure amongst plastic surgeons, as “it is technically demanding and requires a strong commitment from the surgeons, the rest of the surgical team, as well as the hospital,” Dr. Pathy explains. “Preoperative and postoperative training is just as vital as the intraoperative education for the staff. In the end, the best outcomes truly occur when a dedicated team-approach is involved.”
While breast reconstruction remains a sizable portion of his practice, he exercises additional focus on other breast procedures, such as breast augmentations, breast reductions, and breast lifts, as well as abdominoplasties, liposuction, and general body contouring. Skin cancer excisions and closures, as well as facial injectable procedures, such as Botox® Cosmetic, dermal fillers, and Kybella® are also popular requests.
Dr. Pathy recently relocated his practice in Old Lyme to a modern building with state-of-the-art technology, in a private, serene setting.
