About Dr. Rachel A. Ruotolo
Professional Statement
Dr. Ruotolo sees mostly adolescents but treats adults as well. Patients come to Dr. Ruotolo for numerous issues such as cleft lip and palate, protruding ears, syndactyly (fused digits), ear reconstruction for microtia, and craniosynostosis (premature closure of skull sutures resulting in abnormal skull and facial shape). Additionally, Dr. Ruotolo takes a special interest in facial trauma (children and adults), including orbital, zygomatic and mandible fractures, as well as cranioplasty (skull reconstruction) after craniotomy.

Dr. Ruotolo's mission to help children goes far beyond her plastic surgery practice. She serves on the board of Child Abuse Prevention Services, Long Island's leading non-profit resource on the prevention of child abuse and neglect. In 2010, she was honored by the organization with the Distinguished Service to Children Award. During the same year, Dr. Ruotolo received the prestigious Healthcare Hero Award from Long Island Business News.
