Dr. Kolker is committed to achieving and restoring balance and beauty in his plastic surgery practice at home in New York, and to those in need around the world. Dr. Kolker's training in plastic surgery included considerable work with babies and children while at Harvard's Boston Children's Hospital, and at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne, Australia.
