During the Boston marathon bombing, Dr. Mardirossian was part of the team of surgeons who took care of the victims. Thanks to his determination and prompt decision-making, he saved a young patient from a permanent facial disfigurement. Because of his contribution, he was awarded with a certificate of appreciation from Boston Medical Center and the City of Boston for his service during the tragedy.

He currently devotes his practice to facial plastic surgery, facial feminization (FFS) surgery, and skin cancer reconstruction. Dr. Mardirossian is expert in both the most simple office procedures and some of the most complex cranial reconstructions done today. Dr. Mardirossian has published many articles and book chapters on head and neck surgery and facial plastic surgery, and is an invited speaker locally and nationally on these topics. His research efforts were recognized with the Boston University research award in 2013. Previous work has resulted in several interviews for the Palm Beach Post and several TV and radio networks. Dr. Mardirossian specializes in a variety of men’s and women’s facial plastic surgery procedures.

In addition to research and writing, Dr. Mardirossian lectures in several courses at the Charles Schmidt Florida Atlantic University School of Medicine, and sees facial cosmetic surgery patients from all over the United States.
