    Patrick Gerety, MD is a board-certified plastic surgeon, specializing in pediatric and adult plastic surgery. 

    Dr. Gerety was first inspired to specialize in plastic surgery to treat cleft lip and palate. He obtained fellowship training in this area, lived overseas as an international volunteer, and ran a busy cleft lip and palate program in Indiana prior to joining St. Luke's. Today, he co-leads St. Luke’s multidisciplinary cleft lip and palate team.

    Beyond cleft lip and palate, Dr. Gerety is passionate about caring for patients in need of otoplasty for ear deformities, hidden incisions to remove masses, nevus excision reconstruction, and pediatric breast reconstruction. He is a member of St. Luke’s vascular malformations group that cares for patients with hemangioma and venous malformation. 

    Dr. Gerety is also an expert in adult plastic surgery, serving patients with both aesthetic and reconstructive needs. He performs a variety of breast procedures, including reduction, augmentation, lift (mastopexy), reconstruction, and gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction). In addition, he performs cosmetic procedures such as abdominoplasty, rhinoplasty, face lift, and more.

    Dr. Gerety graduated first in his class at University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, which is ranked as one of the top medical schools in the country. He then completed plastic surgery training at the University of Pennsylvania and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
