Ashish Y. Mahajan, MD
I am glad to be part of the dynamic HealthPartners Plastic, Reconstructive, and Hand Surgery group. My surgical interests are broad, including reconstruction of complex wounds, breast surgery, facial injuries, hand surgery, nerve surgery, reconstruction after cancer removal, and cosmetic surgery. I am board certified in Plastic Surgery, with an additional certificate in surgery of the hand from the American Board of Medical Specialties. I hold the title of Assistant Professor of Surgery at the University of Minnesota, and maintain privileges at most of the hospitals in the East Metro as well as Hennepin County Medical Center. I also serve as Program Director for the University of Minnesota Plastic Surgery residencies.
In my practice, I like the collaboration between physician and patient; we work together to solve a problem during a difficult time. The relationship may be brief, or it may continue for many years, depending on the nature of the problem and the complexity of the treatment. Beyond my technical love of surgery, I find these relationships to be immensely satisfying.
Outside of the hospital, I like to spend time with my wife and young children. I also enjoy cooking, gardening, painting, jazz saxophone, and biking.
