Dr. Romita has helped pioneer a unique approach to reversing the aging process through keen appreciation of the synergy among medical disciplines. The guiding force of his approach is a concept called "sequential intervention," whereby the early signs of aging are corrected with less invasive techniques for as long as possible. Progressively more complex surgical enhancements are introduced only when they are necessary and when the benefits can be maximized. According to Dr. Romita, "The goal of modern plastic surgery is to preserve a youthful appearance when possible and restore only when necessary to achieve a natural-looking, harmonious result."

Dr. Romita has published numerous papers in the field of Reconstructive Microsurgery and Trauma. He has been named one of New York Magazine's "Best Doctors in New York" and is listed in Castle Connolly Medical's 1999 edition of "How to Find the Best Doctors In the New York Metro Area."
