Losers and Winners – Massive Weight Loss

One group of patients I particularly enjoy working with is the community of men and women who have lost large amounts of weight.  Whether these patients have conquered obesity on their own or undergone weight loss surgery, Los Angeles area residents who have fought to achieve their ideal weight are inspirational patients.   It’s particularly rewarding for me as a plastic surgeon to meet a weight loss patient in my consulting room.  They’ve done the hard work already, while I get the opportunity to put the finishing touches on their new physique.   This was the case when I met … Continue reading »

“I Cant Say Enough Good Things About Dr. Stoker and His Staff”

I am so incredibly happy with the results from my surgery with Dr. Stoker. It all started for me with a deviated septum that was causing me a lot of sinus infections and migraines. I went to Dr. Stoker on a recommendation from a trusted friend to see what could be done. In addition to having my deviated septum fixed, I also asked for some cosmetic work on my nose. I have wanted a new nose since I was a teenager, but was always nervous of how it might change the way I look. Dr. Stoker did exactly what I … Continue reading »

Clinical Research

The field of medicine advances largely through clinical research performed by doctors and scientists around the world.  Within an individual practice like mine, participating in research projects not only benefits my particular specialty, plastic surgery, it also brings opportunities to my patients.   I’ll give you a couple of examples.  Several years ago, as silicone breast implants were poised to be reapproved by the FDA, I was chosen by two manufacturers to conduct clinical trials of the next generation of silicone gel implants—those that came to be known as gummy bear breast implants.  I gained early expertise with these new … Continue reading »

A Surgeon and a Scholar

As any professional devoted to their field will tell you, it’s challenging to find time to achieve every career goal.  As a Los Angeles plastic surgeon, I find that to be especially true.   Of course, my first priorities are my patients.  Whether I’m consulting with a new patient, performing surgery or conducting a postoperative check up, the men and women I serve come before anything else.   Here in Southern California, other opportunities come my way partly because the area is such a media hotspot.  I’m often invited to make broadcast appearances on programs such as the Dr. Phil … Continue reading »

Post Gastric Bypass Plastic Surgery Patient Gives Dr. Stoker 5 Stars

Dr. Stoker is amazing. He has given me an entirely new outlook on life – he’s given me the body I’ve always wanted. I had gastric bypass surgery 7 years ago, and after losing 150 lbs., I knew deep down that plastic surgery would be the next logical step. I hemmed and hawed, but when I first came to Dr. Stoker 4 years ago, I knew I would eventually come back to him. On December 17th, 2010 – I did! And the results have been amazing; the recovery much easier than I could have ever expected and I am soo … Continue reading »
