Dr. Zachary specializes in body contouring, using surgical precision to remove excess skin, caused by massive weight loss following bariatric surgery.

Dr. Zachary is also particularly skilled in breast surgery. His specialties include breast augmentation following massive weight loss, and reconstructive techniques in patients who have had breast cancer surgery.
Also a skilled hand surgeon, Dr. Zachary provides surgical treatment for vascular disorders, such as Raynaud's phenomenon and scleroderma. He specializes in microsurgical techniques to restore blood flow in the fingers (digital sympathectomy) and hands (palmar sympathectomy).
Dr. Zachary is also a member of the physician team in the Center for Pelvic Health. He helps reconstruct the pelvic floor in patients who have had surgery for cancer or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
An active physician researcher, Dr. Zachary leads clinical trials designed to improve breast surgery techniques. He has authored numerous peer-reviewed articles and abstracts, in addition to several book chapters, on topics in reconstructive surgery.
