A full-time body re-contouring surgeon
“By coming to our practice, patients have the advantage of seeing a surgeon who specializes in the procedures they’re interested in,” Dr. Bartell said. “I’m not a part-time body re-contouring surgeon. I’m a full-time body re-contouring surgeon. I have successfully performed hundreds and hundreds of procedures over a long time.”
Avoiding the typical large, multi-specialty clinic setting, Dr. Bartell has been in solo practice for more than 20 years. He prides himself on providing the highest quality of personalized care – safely, privately and comfortably.
“I chose to go into solo practice because it allows me to give my patients a level of care that isn’t really possible at a big clinic,” Dr. Bartell said. “I’m personally involved in my patients’ care from the moment they walk in the office through the surgical procedure and postoperative care. And I pride myself on being available to my patients at any time.”
Dr. Bartell’s Education
Dr. Bartell grew up in Madison. He graduated from Yale University’s nationally recognized pre-medicine program. He was a member of the famed Yale Wiffenpoofs, a famous a cappella singing group with a long tradition of performing excellence.
He returned home to the University of Wisconsin Medical School, taking classes at the same hospital where he was born. He spent the next seven years in St. Louis for postgraduate study at Barnes Hospital, associated with Washington University’s top-ranked surgery programs and St. Louis University’s plastic surgery program. This training included a wide variety of general surgical procedures as well as concentration on the specialized areas of plastic and reconstructive surgery. During his training at Barnes, Dr. Bartell authored or co-authored more than a dozen scientific articles. To further refine his surgical skills and knowledge, he completed a prized surgical fellowship with a renowned plastic surgery hand specialist practicing in Tucson, Arizona.
In the years that followed, Dr. Bartell worked in a large plastic surgery practice in the Chicago suburbs. This experience gave him the opportunity to focus extensively on cosmetic procedures and acquire the medical business acumen to start his own practice.
A board-certified plastic surgeon and a dad
Dr. Bartell is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, a medical board accredited by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons, and is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons as well as the Wisconsin Society of Plastic Surgeons.
