Dr. Pellegrino always wanted to be a surgeon but his specific interest in plastic surgery began while an undergraduate at Johns Hopkins. “Plastic surgery patients were always the most fascinating to me,” states Dr. Pellegrino. “A plastic surgeon must be a doctor, a technician and an artist, it is what truly inspired me to pursue it as a career.”
