Professional Statement

Greg S. Morganroth, M.D. is the Founder and CEO of California Skin Institute (CSI) and CSI Medical Group. He is a full-time clinician specializing in the most advanced skin surgery techniques available and is responsible for clinical services, business development, and strategic planning. Since 2007, he has integrated over 40 dermatology, plastic surgery, and aesthetic practices to form the largest skin based practice in California with a nationally recognized platinum level platform for dermatology and plastic surgery. Dr. Morganroth is one of a handful of board certified, fellowship-trained dermatologic surgeons in the San Francisco Bay Area specializing in Mohs Surgery, laser surgery, reconstructive, and cosmetic surgery. He is a nationally recognized expert in skin surgery and has received thousands of referrals from dermatologists and other physicians around the Bay Area and beyond for their patients in need of specialized skin cancer surgery, reconstructive surgery, scar revision, laser surgery, and facial, eye, and body cosmetic surgery. Greg S. Morganroth's broad repertoire of surgical procedures spans the gap between dermatology and plastic surgery-a practice that is unique to the region and allows him to offer unique solutions to both common and uncommon surgical problems. Since 1995, has performed over 26,000 Mohs surgery procedures for skin cancer and an equal number of advanced reconstructive surgeries and scar revisions making him one of the most experienced skin cancer surgeons in California. He is also recognized nationally for his unique, minimally invasive cosmetic rejuvenation procedures with local anesthesia. Since 1995, he has performed thousands of facelifts, eyelifts, body sculpting with liposuction, neck sculpting, chin implants, scar revisions, laser procedures, chemical peels, and hair transplants with local anesthesia. Over the past decade, he has developed a niche practice dedicated to helping patients dissatisfied with the outcomes of plastic and reconstructive surgery performed by other surgeons. In 2010, Dr. Morganroth was invited to compete in the Iron Surgeon Competition at the Annual Meeting of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery in Chicago, IL. Based on the votes of over 600 of his surgical peers, Dr. Morganroth won the Iron Surgeon Award based on his superior reconstructive technique and patient outcome. He is a native of Michigan and attended college at The University of Michigan where he graduated with distinction. He received his M.D. cum laude from the University of Michigan School of Medicine where he was elected to the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha National Honor Society and was awarded the Carl Vernon Weller Award for top student in pathology. Dr. Morganroth then left the Midwest for the Ivy League where he completed his internship at the University of Pennsylvania and a dermatology residency at Yale University. At Yale, he realized his true potential as a skin surgeon and decided to pursue a career in dermatologic surgery. Following his graduation from Yale in 1994, he returned to the Midwest to complete a competitive Mohs, Laser, and dermatologic surgery fellowship at the Skin and Mohs Surgery Center, Baptist Medical Center and Hunkeler Eye Clinic in Kansas City, Missouri. During this one year fellowship approved by the American College of Mohs Surgery, he was fortunate to train with a Mohs and laser surgeon, facial plastic surgeon, and an ophthalmic plastic surgeon providing a unique multidisciplinary foundation in skin surgery. Following his fellowship, he moved to Silicon Valley to open his private practice of dermatologic and cosmetic surgery. Dr. Morganroth is perhaps best known nationally for his own unique, state-of-the-art, local anesthesia skin surgery techniques combining facets of dermatologic surgery, facial plastic surgery, and ophthalmic plastic surgery. His techniques that are quite different from traditional plastic surgery in both philosophy and implementation provide dramatic and natural outcomes with the safety and minimal downtime afforded by the use of local anesthesia.* As a recipient of multidisciplinary training during his fellowship, Dr. Morganroth enjoys collaborating with colleagues from dermatology and other surgical specialties. He is regularly visited by dermatologists, plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons, and oculoplastic surgeons from the US and abroad to observe him operate at the California Skin Institute. He is frequently invited to present his reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery techniques at national dermatology and facial plastic surgery meetings. New York University invited him to give the keynote lecture at their Advanced Dermatology Course titled "One Perspective on the Future of Advanced Cosmetic Dermatologic Surgery". He has also taught his cosmetic and reconstruction techniques at Stanford University, New York University (a second time), the University of Miami, University of Utah, Henry Ford Medical Center in Detroit, Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, and many professional meetings including the annual meetings of the American Academy of Dermatology, American College of Mohs Surgery, American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, Foundation for Facial Plastic Surgery, and California Society of Facial Plastic Surgery. He has held various academic appointments previously that include Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery at Stanford University, clinical faculty of the Mittelman Facial Plastic Surgery Fellowship training program based in Los Altos, CA, and as an Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology at the University of California at San Francisco. He was founder and co-director of the Next Step Dermatologic Surgery Course at Stanford University in 2004-2005 and revived the Next Step Dermatologic Surgery Course in 2012 where surgeons from around the US and Canada traveled to watch him perform his unique cosmetic techniques at CSI-San Jose/Los Gatos. He has also published numerous book chapters on his Vertical Vector Facelift technique, chin augmentation, facial reconstruction, and his recommendations to prevent and correct facelift complications in multiple prominent dermatologic surgery reference textbooks. He has also published clinical and research articles in prestigious medical journals including: The New England Journal of Medicine; Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery; Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, Clinics in Plastic Surgery; Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology; Archives of Dermatology; and Journal of Investigative Dermatology. Between 2004 and 2013, Dr. Morganroth was a Mohs fellowship director and trained one or two fellows each year in his skin cancer, reconstruction, laser, and cosmetic techniques. Initially under the auspices of the American College of Mohs Surgery from 2004-2011, his one year fellowship later became independent to encourage the emphasis on advanced cosmetic surgery, laser, and scar revision surgeries. His former surgical fellows have been recruited to leading academic centers on the East and West Coasts as well as private practices thoughout the country. Dr. Morganroth is a Fellow of the American College of Mohs Surgery, American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, California Dermatology Society, and the American Academy of Dermatology. *Individual results may vary and are not guaranteed.

I was a patient of Dr. Morganroth fourteen years ago. The results of Mohs treatment on my nose back then were excellent!! This time I am facing Mohs surgery on my forehead. After visiting a different doctor close to my home, I was given far more complex instructions relative to surgery than before. The gravity of the instructions from this local doctor plus the warnings of many different things that could go wrong was quite disturbing. Dr. Morganroth answered all of my questions directly and I felt far more confidence in his abilities as a doctor especially given his success with me in the past!

It was quick and just fine! It was okay to cancel my appt. on zoc doc without letting me know, because I got in 15 minutes earlier anyway! I had to call to get in! Which is ok also! Thinking about getting IPL. Does the doctor ever do IPL?

I was hoping for help doing an overall mole/cancer screening, assess sun damage, and also address some skincare concerns and have never felt more dismissed by a doctor in my life (and I've had plenty.) Dr. Morganroth informed me that he was basically too good to be dealing with my issues, that I should have booked with another dr. and proceeded to make me super uncomfortable to the point of tears. It's unfortunate because the front office staff is lovely, but he's too busy for anything that doesn't require expensive surgery. Be forewarned...

I always have to wait to see him, anywhere from 30-60 minutes. I understand it up to a point because I usually have appointments very late in the day. Still... Dr. Morganroth generally has a good bedside manner, but this last visit for botox was a "blow-by". I may start moving my appointments to morning.
