Dr. Crespo discovered his love for plastic surgery during a surgical rotation at UConn and decided to apply for this highly competitive residency. With only 48 integrated plastic surgery openings, Dr. Crespo acquired a highly coveted spot in the well-respected Plastic Surgery Program at UMass Medical School. Here, he spent the next six years, gaining invaluable experience in facial, breast, and lower extremity reconstruction. Dr. Crespo’s mentor and friend, Dr. Richard Montilla, is a well-recognized plastic surgeon in the Boston area and has trained under the tutelage of prominent facial plastic surgeon Dr. Timothy Marten. During his aesthetic rotations, Dr. Crespo trained at The Boston Center in Back Bay with world-renown plastic surgeons Dr. Jeffrey Darrow (facial and breast aesthetic/body contouring), Dr. Michael Yaremchuk (facial aesthetics), and Dr. Richard Silverman (gynecomastia). After completing his plastic surgery residency, Dr. Crespo decided to broaden his skills and subsequently completed an Orthopedic Hand Fellowship at UMass.

This additional training allows Dr. Crespo to provide his patients with functionality plus a keen attention to detail.
Dr. Crespo was raised in Orlando, FL, by two strong women who worked their entire lives to provide for him and his siblings – his mother and his grandmother.
