Read Dr. Svestka’s Personal Statement Below

High technical standards make a surgeon effective, but it is the appreciation of every patient as a human that makes a surgeon excellent. In this light, my personalized care philosophy balances effective communication with patient education to ensure that all patients understand their individualized treatment plan.

Navigating healthcare can be a confusing process. I strive to address all questions and concerns and it is my goal to fully explain the diagnosis, all available care options, and what to expect from treatment.

In my free time, I am an active runner and triathlete and have competed in a number of races both domestically and abroad.
