A native of New Jersey, Dr. Krein is a Board Certified, Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia Pa. As such, Dr. Krein specializes solely in plastic and reconstructive surgery of the face, head and neck. This assures his patients the specific and focused expertise that they should expect.

As Associate Professor in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Philadelphia’s prestigious Thomas Jefferson University, Dr. Krein is considered to be an outstanding teacher and lecturer.

His practice encompasses the entire spectrum of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, including rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, facial rejuvenation surgery, fat transfers, facial augmentation, wrinkle treatment, corrective surgery for facial defects, ear reshaping, microtia repair, microsurgery, reconstruction of cancer patients and extensive post-traumatic deformities. He also is considered to be one of the experts when it comes to Botox and injectable fillers (Restylane, Juvaderm, Radiesse, Sculptra). In addition to his busy surgical practice, Dr. Krein has also been actively involved in several humanitarian organizations. His passion lies in helping others who have either congenital or acquired facial defects.
