Cooley Dickinson Medical Group Plastic Surgery (formerly Northampton Plastic Surgery) is committed to restoring and enhancing form and function in the least invasive way possible. Our experienced surgeons partner with each patient to advance their health by developing a personalized plan, one that carefully considers health, well-being and lifestyle.
If you’ve been thinking about a change or enhancement, require reconstructive work after cancer surgery, bariatric surgery or facial fractures, or have a child in need of surgeries related to injury or birth defects, we can help.
To talk to us about your unique needs, call 413-584-0044 for an appointment today.
Simone Topal, MD heads the team of caring professionals at Cooley Dickinson Medical Group Plastic Surgery. Dr. Topal was born in Manhattan and grew up in Northampton, and completed a combined general and plastic surgery internship and residency at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire after graduating from medical school at the Saint Louis University School of Medicine. She has traveled the world as a fellow with the international humanitarian organization Interplast (now called ReSurge International), which provides free reconstructive surgery to children and adults in underdeveloped countries. Before moving back to Northampton, where she now lives with her husband and two children, she was an attending plastic surgeon and clinical instructor of plastic surgery at Dartmouth. Dr. Topal is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
“Every patient is a person and deserves to be treated respectfully. When you see me in consultation, I listen first to what your concerns are and to what bothers you, and I examine the area in question.”
In 2018, Nicole Zarba, PA-C joined the practice and now works alongside Dr. Topal and the Plastic Surgery team to provide care throughout all stages of treatment. She holds her Masters in Physician Assistant Studies from the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in Manchester, New Hampshire.
“I strive to help our patients feel more comfortable in their bodies by reaching their treatment goals.”
