Dr. Bitan prides himself on taking the time to carefully assess his patients’ individual needs and treat them like family.

Dr. Bitan has worked with innovative surgeons in China, Germany, Israel, and his native France. With an avid interest in cutting-edge technology, he regularly travels the world to learn from leading experts in new surgical techniques.
