Special to DailyDr. Jeffrey Resnick

VAIL ” Chip Woodland, M.D., Medical Director of the Vail Valley Medical Center, announces the recent addition of Jeffrey Resnick, M.D. to the VVMC staff. Resnick brings more than 20 years of reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery experience to the organization.

“Those of us who live and vacation in the Vail Valley are extremely blessed to have a world-class medical center at our finger tips,” Woodland said. “With the addition of Dr. Resnick we add world-class reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery to the Vail Valley Medical Center’s list of strengths.”

Prior to accepting his position at VVMC, Resnick lived in Brentwood, Calif. and was in private practice with Pacific SurgiCenter, located in Santa Monica. In addition to his private practice, he was an assistant professor of clinical surgery at the University of Southern California’s School of Medicine and a clinical faculty member at the UCLA School of Medicine.

Resnick received his Bachelor of Science at Yale and his Doctor of Medicine at University of Pennsylvania. He completed his residency in both general surgery and plastic surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Mass. before completing a fellowship program in craniofacial surgery at the University of California.

“I am extremely excited about the opportunity to live in this valley and practice at such a progressive medical center,” Resnick said. “The level of care offered in all disciplines is extraordinary. In the past I’ve worked closely with orthopods and know that Vail’s orthopedic surgeons are some of the best in the world. Likewise, the work done through the Shaw Regional Cancer Center is superior and I hope to lend my experience to relevant reconstructive work associated with Shaw.”

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

Dr. Resnick believes strongly in volunteering his reconstructive plastic surgery services to help those less fortunate. In the past 20 years he has participated in numerous foreign medical service volunteer programs through Interplast. He typically spends two weeks a year in countries such as Vietnam, Nepal, Myanmar and Mexico helping indigenous peoples with various reconstructive surgical needs, including treating burns and cleft pallet.
