Areas of Innovation
ADVANCING PLASTIC SURGERY
Dr. Jewell believes that advances in plastic surgery involve a linkage between research, innovation, and education. His diverse background of interest in business, biomechanical engineering, and application of technology-based solutions to medical care have given him a keen interest in developing techniques, devices, and processes to improve outcomes in plastic surgery.
He has written extensively how applications of the Toyota Production System and Lean Manufacturing processes can be applied within healthcare to improve patient safety and quality of outcomes.
A Voice For Innovation
Dr. Jewell has written original peer-reviewed scientific articles that involved both clinical research in ultrasonic lipoplasty, form-stable breast implants, and neurotoxins. He has authored articles on the basic science of high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) that is being developed as a non-invasive type of body contouring.
Additional contributions relate to book chapters on lipoabdominoplasty and the MACS short scar facelift. His most recent book, Safety With Injectables Workbook is in its second edition. This is a workbook offered by the Physicians Coalition for Injectable Safety www.injectablesafety.org
