Meet Dr ElahiProceduresInteractive LabFormsFaeye

Dr. Ebby Elahi brings a breadth and depth of experience to his orbitofacial plastic surgery practice. After his medical training and residency at Mount Sinai School of Medicine and his fellowship training at Mount Sinai and Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Infirmary, he continued his involvement with the prestigious Mount Sinai in many capacities including teaching clinical medicine and surgery to fellows and residents with diverse medical specialties. As well, he has served as Director of Eye Care Services at Mount Sinai-NYU Medical Center.

His many years of medical, microsurgical and laser surgical work have been grounded in both research and practical experience. Dr. Ebby Elahi's practical experience covers a wide range from oculofacial reconstructive surgery to complex cancer reconstructive surgery to purely aesthetic facial plastic surgery. His success with thousands of procedures stems from his focus on combining safety and skill with a strong commitment to achieving a natural and desired result for each individual. This includes patients seen in his Manhattan offices, patients treated as a part of his teamwork with other specialists at several major academic centers in New YorK City , as well as pro bono patients treated in developing world countries.

It is possible that Dr. Ebby Elahi's success also has its roots in his love of art in all contexts. He derives intense satisfaction in knowing that his patients come to him for individual consultation and treatment and eventually depart with increased confidence and well-being.
