Dr. Stelnicki joins Virgin Islands Ear, Nose & Throat practice!

Dr. Stelnicki joins Virgin Islands Ear, Nose & Throat, practice in St. Thomas, VI – the only practice in the territory to provide pediatric plastic surgery services!

The practice is the most comprehensive otolaryngology practice in the Caribbean, serving adult and pediatric patients with a variety of surgeries, treatments, and patient care.

According to the Virgin Islands Daily News, “Recently, practice founder Adam M. Shapiro, M.D., F.A.C.S., announced the addition of Eric J. Stelnicki, M.D., to its roster of highly skilled medical professionals. Said Dr. Shapiro, “‘With Dr. Stelnicki on our team, we are the only medical practice in the territory to provide the services of a pediatric plastic surgeon.’”

Dr. Stelnicki’s addition to the St. Thomas practice opens the door to a range of treatments previously unavailable to children living in the Virgin Islands.

The multi award-winning practice addresses sinusitis and allergies, sleep and snoring disorders, hearing loss, dizziness and tinnitus, ear nose and throat problems, voice and swallowing disorders, as well as providing facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, Botox, Thermage, Restylane, Juvederm — and other cosmetic treatments,” according to the Virgin Island Daily News.

Dr. Stelnicki has been practicing plastic surgery in South Florida since 1998, and is now expanding to the Virgin Islands to provide the best pediatric and adult plastic surgery and patient care to those in need.

A group of volunteers from Barry University joined Drs. Eric J. Stelnicki of Atlantic Center of Aesthetic & Reconstructive Surgery and his father, Dr. James Stelnicki, on a medical mission trip to Georgetown, Guyana last summer.

The trip was funded in-part by Children’s Health and Rehabilitative Missions (CHARM), a non-profit organization established by Dr. Eric J. Stelnicki. The mission to Guyana, a small South American nation with only one plastic surgeon for its entire population, has an urgent need for pediatric reconstructive surgery and podiatric care.

Together, these medical teams provided in-country medical and nursing education. Through this, the team ultimately hopes to achieve long-term sustainability for providing reconstructive and surgical care on a continual basis in Guyana. The group ended up seeing more than 100 patients and performed around 35 surgeries.

Children's Health and Rehabilitative Missions (CHARM)

Children’s Health and Rehabilitative Missions (CHARM) is a 501(c)3 charity, founded by renown pediatric plastic surgeon, Dr. Eric J. Stelnicki, of Atlantic Center of Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery.
CHARM is dedicated to bringing hope to children around the world by joining medical, nursing, and allied health professionals together to perform life-saving surgical procedures and medical treatment to impoverished children who would otherwise never receive the necessary care.
Currently, CHARM involves plastic and reconstructive surgery, podiatry, and primary care services. The goal is to expand in order to offer many more medical specialties such as general surgery, breast cancer specialists, speech pathology, dentistry, psychiatry, and more.
With increasing funds, CHARM hopes to extend its mission and provide teams to many countries. In addition it is our desire to provide the medical and allied health services to children in Florida who are either uninsured or due to the high cost of insurance and the associated deductibles, are unable to afford care.
