Sophie Bartsich was born and raised in New York City. She was educated in the French school system at the Lycée Français de New York and learned early on to appreciate an international aesthetic. She completed the French Baccalauréat degree in biology, then an undergraduate degree in psychology at Cornell University, with a focus on behavior and interpersonal relationships.
Compelled by a growing interest in design, she completed a graduate degree at the world renowned Parsons School of Design while working at the fashion house of Calvin Klein. This was followed by a period of study abroad in foreign language and art centered around classic and modern Italian history. Her design perspective ranges from fashion to architecture, with a focus on balance and natural aesthetics.
Dr. Bartsich completed her premedical studies at Columbia University and her medical degree at the Weill Cornell Medical College in New York. She was accepted into the independent program in Plastic Surgery at New York Presbyterian Hospital, where she trained at a wide range of top ranked academic institutions in Manhattan.
Dr. Bartsich is an assistant clinical professor of surgery at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University, New York Presbyterian Hospital Medical center, where she trains medical students and residents on a regular basis.
In 2010, Dr. Bartsich was awarded a research grant to pursue studies in implant-based breast surgery. This research won two awards at the national Aesthetic Meeting in 2011, and ultimately became the basis of her current academic endeavors. She has been widely published in several peer-reviewed journals, and has been invited to speak at local and national conferences.
"I believe that the goal of plastic surgery is to restore and to optimize form and function, while seeking an intuitive balance. This approach means customizing treatment to the individual and maximizing each patient's potential."
Dr. Bartsich is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and serves as an invited Panelist on the Doximity Physician Panel.
Dr. Bartsich is a Board Member of Voyager Med, a prestigious international network that matches patients with expert practitioners.
