Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. As a plastic surgeon, one of Dr. Rauscher’s specialities include hand surgery – the field of medicine that deals with problems of the hand, wrist and forearm. When necessary, he is trained to operate and correct any improper issues with modern surgical techniques. One of the most common congenital defects is syndactyly, in which two or more finger are fused together. Other common congenital defects include short, missing or deformed fingers, immobile tendons, and abnormal nerves or blood vessels. In most cases, these defects can be treated surgically and significant improvement can be expected.

Dr. Rauscher has authored several articles for prominent medical journals. He has also authored several chapters in educational texts, focusing on topics such as mid-facelift, endoscopic brow lift, and eyelid surgery techniques. In his spare time, he enjoys playing tennis and skiing.
