Orlando, FL (May 31, 2023) – The Orlando Health Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery Institute is proud to announce the addition of Dr. Jason Crespo to their team of experienced reconstructive surgeons.

Dr. Crespo is a board-certified and fellowship-trained plastic and reconstructive surgeon. He is skilled in a variety of procedures, including:

  • General plastic surgery
  • Cosmetic plastic surgery
  • Noninvasive procedures
  • Reconstructive surgery
  • Full body restoration

He earned a pharmacy degree from the University of Florida in Gainesville before going on to receive his medical degree at the University of Connecticut in Farmington. While at UConn, Dr. Crespo was inducted into the Gold Humanism Honor Society, a peer and educator nominated accolade for medical students who are role models and future leaders. He completed his residency in plastic surgery and performed a fellowship in hand surgery at the University of Massachusetts in Worcester.

"We are pleased to welcome Dr. Crespo to the team as we continue to elevate the standards of reconstructive surgery for our patients," said Kenneth Lee, MD, chief of plastic and reconstructive surgery at Orlando Health. "His commitment to excellence and passion for restoring lives, make him an excellent addition to our team."

Dr. Crespo is the newest physician to join the Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery Institute. Earlier this year, the institute hired another accomplished surgeon, Dr. Vincent Chavanon, to continue serving patients with the most progressive surgery techniques and the highest level of care.

"I am excited to join the world-class team at Orlando Health and have the opportunity to make a meaningful impact in the lives of our patients,” said Dr. Crespo. "I look forward to working with my new colleagues to bring greater innovation and compassionate care as we push the boundaries of reconstructive surgery, offering hope, healing, and transformation to those in need."
