Early in his practice, Dr. Nukta concentrated his practice on the care of trauma victims especially those suffering from traumatic injuries to the hand or face. Although plastic surgery is better known for cosmetic surgery, Dr. Nukta tailored his surgical practice initially to take care of patients with injuries to the hand and face. This focus helped him gain tremendous experience and wide recognition in Northern Virginia. This experience made him a better cosmetic surgeon.
