Charles G. Hurbis, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Dr. Hurbis trained at the University of Illinois with some of the country’s leading facial plastic surgeons.  He completed 4 years of training with Eugene Tardy, M.D., Dean Toriumi, M.D., and Regan Thomas, M.D.  These doctors (known in Chicago as the “Fab 3”) are internationally known as 3 of the leading facial cosmetic and rhinoplastic surgeons in the country.  Between them they have authored over 6 of the leading textbooks on Rhinoplasty and Facial Plastic Surgery.

Dr. Hurbis has chosen the nasal airway reconstruction as a primary area of interest.  He has published and presented extensively on this subject and developed the Monarch nasal implant, an alloplastic implant, for correction of nasal valve problems in conjunction with Hanson Medical.
