Marsha C. Kavanagh, M.D.
Dr. Kavanagh is a fellowship trained specialist in Oculoplastic Surgery. She enjoys the diversity of her subspecialty which includes cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the eyelids, eyebrows, and midface, as well as treatment of tearing problems, thyroid disease, eyelid and orbital tumors and facial trauma.

This organization recognizes less than 15 physicians nationwide each year for training in this highly specialized field.

She has published numerous articles and contributed to a number of chapters in ophthalmic textbooks. She was previously on faculty at Ohio State University and UCSF where she was nominated for several teaching awards and received the Kimura Award for excellence in resident teaching.

In her leisure time, Dr. Kavanagh enjoys hiking, skiing, running, playing the piano, and spending time with her family.

Both Dr. Kavanagh and Dr. Warren Goldblatt were nominated as the “Top Doctor” by NH Magazine in 2019.¬† ¬†This is their 3rd straight year of being nominated in their specialty!
