Dr. Marsh, We Are So Sad To See You Go!
As of June 30, 2015, Dr Jeffrey Marsh retired from Kids Plastic Surgery and the full-time practice of craniofacial surgery. Dr. Marsh, a highly respected craniofacial surgeon, enjoyed a successful academic plastic surgery career before joining the staff of Mercy Children’s Hospital in St Louis, MO, in 2003. His contributions to plastic surgery and especially to the care of children with Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome over his 35 year career are significant. But perhaps more important and lasting is Dr. Marsh's legacy of caring for indiviiduals, not only the children and families he treated as patients but also the many students, physicians and coworkers that he mentored and encouraged throughout his career. Without a doubt, Dr. Marsh leaves us all large shoes to fill.
All of us at Kids Plastic Surgery will miss Dr. Marsh tremendously. However, we look forward to building on his legacy as we continue to offer the same compassionate, personalized care to our patients, including our young patients with Beckwith Wiedemann syndrome. Dr. Gage, practice partner of Dr. Marsh over the last 3 years, will continue to offer evaluation and treatment services to children with Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome in collaboration with the same knowledgeable team of specialists who have worked with Dr. Marsh for the last 12 years. Although Dr. Marsh may have retired, we all feel his influence every day, and the experienced craniofacial team he built and mentored at Mercy Children’s Hospital remains committed to providing excellent craniofacial care for many years to come,
