Dr. Babbitt is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Education and Training

A native of southeastern Massachusetts, Dr. Babbitt graduated from UMass Dartmouth in 1999 with a degree in Biology. From there, he went on to University of Massachusetts Medical School, and received his M.D. in 2003. Dr. Babbitt continued at UMass Medical Center for his internship and residency training in General Surgery, and completed his training in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery there.

Research

In addition to his clinical training, Dr. Babbitt completed a two-year research fellowship in the areas of microsurgery, human anatomy, limb reconstruction, complex models of wound healing, and abdominal reconstruction. Dr. Babbitt co-authored a textbook chapter as well as several journal articles, and has presented research at regional, national and international meetings.

Service

Dr. Babbitt has been part of volunteer programs at every stage of his career, and has found these experiences to be some of the most fulfilling aspects of his professional life. During residency and fellowship he participated in multiple trips to South America, where he was part of a team that performed cleft lip, cleft palate, burn and congenital hand surgery. He plans to continue this work throughout his career, and encourages everyone to support programs that help to bring much needed medical and surgical care to those who are less fortunate.

Testimonial

"Dr Babbitt is a skilled physician who does awesome plastic surgery! Somewhere along the way in his training he never lost his compassion for the human spirit. He is gentle, kind and a supportive clinician. He makes his patients feel at ease utilizing his excellent teaching skills along with humor, self-confidence and tenderness. He should be on the faculty of a med school mentoring future physicians. His treatment of my 17 year old daughter was wonderful. I have been a nurse for over 30 years and he is by far one of the best physicians I have ever encountered."
