Sameer Jejurikar’s Fiery Passion for Plastic Surgery

Sameer Jejurikar is a board certified plastic surgeon based in Dallas, Texas. He has been practicing for just over 20 years and doesn’t show any intention of slowing down. He has his own private practice and works to improve the safety and effectiveness of plastic surgery. Dr. Jejurikar said that one of the secrets to his success is that he has a passion for what he does and that not all of them have that same kind of fiery passion. His specialties are not limited to any one part of the body. He loves to work on anything and everything. He is also known for his warmth and sensitivity.

When Dr. Jejurikar began his career, he immediately began making a name for himself. Over about the last decade or so, he has earned his own stripes as a Texan and so has his career. He has worked in various medical centers including the Baylor Medical Center, the Forrest Park Medical Center, and the Dallas Day Surgery Center.

Yet even though he runs his own private practice, the bigger part of the procedure and operating rooms are more of a priority for him. Since he runs absolutely solo in his practice, he is in his office only a half a day out of the week. That is the time when he consults with new patients and performs minor surgeries. The rest of the time, he’s doing the major stuff in the operating rooms. Every time Dr. Jejurikar gets a new patient, he not only tries to customize the procedure. He also seeks the newest and most innovative techniques to integrate into the procedure.

The Brazilian Butt Lift is another one of Dr. Jejurikar’s specialties. It is a procedure that involves moving fat from one part of the body to the buttocks. One of its risks is fat embolisms and it’s one of the things that Dr. Jejurikar is currently helping to prevent.

Gottlieb and Weisbrod Reunited

They’ve been apart for so long but, after twenty years, Jacob Gottlieb and Stuart Weisbrod will finally be collaborating in the same office space once again. The pair initially began working together when they cofounded Merlin Biomed Group, an investment management company dedicated to improving the healthcare system and preventing people from going into debt on account of unpaid medical bills.

The company found mild success during the late 90’s and most of the 2000’s but ended up dissolving in 2007 at which point the pair went their separate ways. Following their separation, Gottlieb went on to become the founder of Visium Asset Management while Weisbrod ended up founding Iguana Healthcare Partners. Despite their separation, however, it seems they were destined to make their way back to each other. Visium managed to survive the stock market crash of 2008 and become an $8 billion company with branches in some of the most famous cities around the world.

However, their success all came crashing down in 2016. It seems a whistleblower discovered there had been numerous instances of mismarking and insider trading within the company and finally went public with the information. While Gottlieb himself never faced any criminal charges, he did consent to pay out more than $10 million in restitution fees. After the company went under, he had to start from scratch with a new project known as Altium Capital, a hedge fund looking to make a significant impact on the pharmaceutical industry. While it has yet to be approved by the FDA, it does offer some promising results. This new project is what has brought the two together once again and they will be collaborating on this new venture. While it’s unclear how successful it will be, it is expected that the outcome will be quite remarkable overall.
