Background and Road to Facial Plastic Surgery:
Dr. Ruslan Zhuravsky previously worked in Long Island, where his surgical abilities, pleasant bedside manner, and strong concern for patient well-being allowed him to quickly develop a positive reputation based purely on patient referrals. The greatest compliment was that despite many other choices, those who worked with Dr. Z in the OR and Office trusted him with their own care, as well as that of their family members. This made the choice to move to New Jersey extremely difficult, but Dr. Z is very excited to be back in his hometown, where he can continue to provide the same level of excellence and care!
His creativity, artistic abilities, and experiences as an Emergency Medical Technician in high school inspired him to obtain a Bachelor’s of Science from The Pennsylvania State University, being one of the few students accepted into their rigorous Pre-Medicine Program, and was followed by an Interdisciplinary Medical Sciences program at Drexel University. Dr. Z attended Medical School at Nova Southeastern University, an Osteopathic Medical School, focusing not only on individual medical conditions but also on how they affect patients as a whole. During that time, he was elected to many leadership positions in a variety of student surgical organizations, founded a new organization for Otolaryngology and Plastic Surgery, and worked as an Anatomy Instructor for Physician Assistants, Nursing Students, Occupational Therapist, and Anesthesia Assistant students.
Dr. Zhuravsky’s evaluations from his clinical rotations at Mt. Sinai Medical Center and Miami Children’s Hospital, as well as his excellent board scores and dedication earned him a very highly competitive Residency in Otolaryngology and Facial Plastic Surgery at UMDNJ-SOM / Rowan-SOM / Kennedy Hospital System. During his 5 years of training, Dr. Zhuravsky was privileged to learn from some of the finest plastic surgeons, focusing specifically on facial plastic surgery. Dr. Z went beyond the standard training as he obtained additional training and experience in New York City, and attended multiple conferences on Facial Plastic Surgery during his "spare time" and even "vacations". He also received Head and Neck Surgery training at the world renowned Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.
However, the journey does not stop there. Dr. Z believes that education is a life long process and thus continues to educate himself on the latest techniques and research in order to be able to provide his patients with the best and most up to date care.
Dr. Zhuravsky's main objective is to provide excellence in care for each and every patient. Locally, Dr. Z sees patients from Howell, Freehold, Marlboro, Manalapan, Holmdel, Colts Neck, Old Bridge, and Jackson. However, he also has patients from more distant parts on NJ, NY, Philadelphia, and Miami. Dr. Zhuravsky is now also extending his Rhinoplasty expertise to patients in Northern NJ in partnership with Dr. Park Ave in Hoboken, NJ.
Dr. Z's new location is conveniently located 5 minutes from the Freehold Mall, along Route 9 just on the border of Freehold and Howell.
