Dr. Murakami recently completed his fifth mission as instructor and surgeon with the team at the Khmer Soviet Friendship Hospital in Phnom Penh.
"I enjoy interacting with patients and providing comprehensive and state-of-the-art facial plastic surgery in a safe and ethical manner."
"As a facial plastic surgeon, I am trained to treat patients with either reconstructive or cosmetic concerns related to the head and neck region. Each problem, each patient and each solution are unique, and the proper treatment plan can only be derived through interaction and communication to understand the hopes, desires and fears of each patient. My number one goal is patient satisfaction."
