Dr. Bruce Moskowitz, New York Eye Oculoplastic and Reconstructive Surgeon

New York Oculoplastic and Reconstructive Surgeon
Plastic Surgeon in Poughkeepsie, NY

Bruce Moskowitz, M.D.

From a young age, Dr. Moskowitz appreciated the importance of surgical skill and knew that it would be the focus and passion of his career. Suffering from an orbital floor fracture at the age of eight, he required meticulous surgical care in order to preserve his vision and treat his injuries. The impact of this surgical experience is what compelled him to pursue a path in the medical profession, with the goal of providing extraordinary and life-changing care to others.

Dr. Moskowitz began his formal education at Wesleyan University, where he graduated with a B.S. in 1983. Just a few years later, SUNY Downstate Medical School awarded him with his M.D. in 1987. Still drawing inspiration from his childhood experience, Dr. Moskowitz pursued a residency in Ophthalmology. At the New York Eye & Ear Infirmary, he continued his post-doctoral training in the area of oculoplastic and reconstructive surgery. Although his formal education has long been completed, he continues to be an active member of both the ENT/otolaryngology and cosmetic plastic surgery programs.

Although Dr. Moskowitz continues teaching both residents and fellows at the New York Eye & Ear Infirmary, his influence spreads far beyond these programs. He frequently lectures both around the country and abroad to share his knowledge with others in the profession, and has authored numerous books and articles throughout his career. His specialty remains in the areas of oculoplastic surgery, cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery, for which he performs hundreds of procedures each and every year. Dr. Moskowitz is also experienced in administering dermal filler and injectable treatments. In the last two decades of his career, he’s performed thousands of these treatments for patients of all ages.

Dr. Moskowitz possesses a unique commitment to excellence and care thanks to his early experience as a patient. Throughout his career, he has remained focused and impassioned in his effort to provide patients with outcomes that deliver both function and beauty. His specific background in ophthalmology and oculoplastic surgery makes him the superior choice for any procedures involving the eyes, ocular function and the surrounding areas of the face. Dr. Moskowitz’s reputation can surely speak for itself, but he also looks forward to meeting with patients one-on-one and showing his dedication through honest and exceptional care.
