Dr. Swistun was born in Poland, emigrated to Chicago with his family at age 11, and completed the majority of his medical and general surgical training in metropolitan Chicago, gaining broad exposure to treatment of diverse populations and surgical conditions. His experience was further enriched by his military active duty service with the US Marines as a Battalion Surgeon, including two combat deployments to the front lines of Iraq, between 2005-2009. Dr. Swistun then went on to complete a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Residency at the University of Utah, perfecting the nuances of operating on the hand, breast, craniofacial anomalies, lower extremity reconstruction and aesthetics. A cornerstone of Dr. Swistun’s approach is treating every patient as if they were family. He stays true to their goals and desires with unmatched availability, and clear communication throughout every step of treatment.
