Dr. Joseph Michael Gryskiewicz , MD

Plastic Surgery


Dr. Gryskiewicz graduated from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1972 with a bachelor’s degree in nursing through the registered nursing program at the College of St. Catherine. He graduated from the University of Minnesota medical school in 1978. His post-graduate medical training included seven years of surgical residency at the University of Wisconsin Health Sciences Center. Dr. Gryskiewicz is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and received a certificate of special training in cosmetic surgery from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). He has been an official spokesperson for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). He is Chairman of the Emerging Trends Task Force, and belongs to numerous professional organizations and committees, including ASAPSs/ASPSs Innovative Procedures Committee. As a moderator for its biannual Hot Topics in Plastic Surgery course, he keeps up on cutting-edge developments in his field. He is an active member of the Rhinoplasty Society and past president. He also holds several issued patents for surgical devices. Dr. Gryskiewicz was inducted into the International Society of Clinical Plastic Surgeons in 2003. Dr. Gryskiewicz speaks internationally and has given over one hundred presentations to professional organizations on topics such as breast augmentation and nose surgery. He writes regularly for numerous medical journals and other publications, and is a guest reviewer for the international journals Aesthetic Surgery Journal and the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Dr. Joseph Gryskiewicz was inspired to pursue a career in plastic surgery after a six-month trip as a volunteer in San Lucas Tolimán, Guatemala. Journeying by Jeep to the remote, guerrilla-occupied mountain regions, he worked around the clock, seven days a week, treating patients plagued with parasites, malnutrition, and tuberculosis. His most moving experiences came while living at the Casa Feliz orphanage, where he worked with the Cachchequal tribe of Central American Mayan Indians. Many of the orphans suffered from cleft lips or palates, and the life-changing difference a simple procedure made for them altered Dr. Gryskiewicz’s life as well. He and his family are devoted to assisting the people of Third World countries. His heartwarming, electrifying adventures with the Cachchequal Mayan Indians, as well as other medical journeys, will be featured in his upcoming book, tentatively titled Three Faces. Dr. Gryskiewicz travels annually to South America with the international aid organizations Interplast and San Francisco de Asis to operate on children with cleft lips, cleft palates, and burns. This work is featured in the book, Caring Hands: Inspiring Stories of Volunteer Medical Missions by Susan I. Alexis, in the chapter “Correcting the Negative.” For this and other volunteer work, he received the WCCO Radio Good Neighbor Award in 1986 and the University of St. Thomas Humanitarian of the Year Award in 1992. Minneapolis St. Paul Magazine has named him one of the area’s Top Doctors and he has been quoted in Elle and Allure magazines.
