In Dr. Lynch's own words, "This is especially gratifying for me to help so many plastic surgeons in all areas of their professional lives, not only surgical skills but also many other areas of practice. Recently, I had the honor of being asked to speak at the Albany Law School concerning medical-legal aspects of medicine. I brought with me all of our plastic surgery residents to interact in a healthy discussion of the topic. The exchange was wonderful for all as we discussed in-depth details, some of which were quite controversial, as you can imagine!"
