Training & Experience

Dr. Baltrusch was raised on a family farm and ranch in northcentral Montana where he was instilled with a strong work ethic and values that he continues to portray through his surgical practice.  He was the first to pursue graduate education in his family and graduated from Gonzaga University earning his degree in Exercise Physiology while also being a collegiate athlete.  He confirmed his passion for plastic surgery during an extended medical mission in western Africa before returning to the Pacific Northwest and earning his medical degree from Oregon Health and Science University.  Dr. Baltrusch remained in Portland, Oregon where he completed a plastic surgery residency at OHSU.  He served as Chief Resident in Plastic Surgery during his final year of residency.

Dr. Baltrusch has spent the majority of his life in the Pacific Northwest for graduate studies and specialized training.  He has an affinity to the area and enjoys serving the communities that he has grown so fond of and admires.  He strives to be an advocate for his patients and works with each patient to reach their reconstructive or cosmetic goal.  He believes that plastic surgery promotes self-confidence and improves quality of life, therefore, he finds it most rewarding to facilitate these transformations.  While Dr. Baltrusch is new to practice, he is highly respected and will certainly establish himself as a leader within this rapidly growing and competitive field.

In his free time, Dr. Baltrusch enjoys running, various other sports and physical exercise as these are important to his personal mental and physical health.  He enjoys spending time with his friends, whom have become his Portland family and he enjoys traveling and immersing himself in other cultures.
