Dr. Jon A. Kotis’s career has taken him down the hallways of many hospitals and universities. After graduating from Midwestern University School of Medicine and completing a general surgery residency at St. John’s University Hospital, he became vice president of the medical staff at Lincoln Park Hospital. Since then, Dr. Kotis has loaded walls, mantles, and refrigerators with titles and honors, most notably a board certification from the American Osteopathic Board of Surgery. His work has been recognized in various press outlets, including the television show The Doctors, which featured his pain-relieving knuckle transplant procedure.
Today, Dr. Kotis shares his aesthetic expertise at The Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery. He and his staff fine-tune faces with less intensive procedures, such as Botox injections and microdermabrasion, and dramatically transform bodies with procedures including liposuction and rhinoplasty.
