Results & Innovation

Dr. Chesnut is obsessed with his results and his craft. He uses the mindset of a professional athlete to improve his patients’ recovery and results, and prepare for his surgeries himself. He mentally prepares with purpose for each procedure to enter neurocognitively optimized and in his flow state.

Dr. Chesnut’s surgical capacity and creativity allows him to find innovative, minimally invasive solutions to achieve outcomes that are at once both subtle and impactful, while remaining almost unbelievably natural. This is what he is known for, and it is what he loves.


Dr. Chesnut leads the world with his entire process, from pre-operative patient optimization with nutrition and peptides, to his progressive use of regenerative medicine and postoperative recovery techniques.

Dr. Chesnut’s intra-operative techniques feature a progressive focus on regenerative medicine to help optimize healing and outcomes. Even Dr. Chesnut’s anesthesia protocol is next level - focused on protecting your neurocognitive function with the safest, opioid free anesthesia. This is NOT general anesthesia, and it even allows Dr. Chesnut to help optimize your sleep cycle after surgery.

After surgery, Dr. Chesnut’s post-operative recovery protocols significantly improve the entire recovery process. These protocols feature hyperbaric oxygen therapy, targeted IV nutrition, PEMF, photobiomodulation, and even ozone therapy to improve your body’s recovery process, speed the recovery timeframe, and improve your long term results.

The recovery process all takes place on site in Dr. Chesnut’s specially designed recovery clinic, and they are all part of the concierge experience that accompanies your travel and procedure with Dr. Chesnut.

Even Dr. Chesnut himself has a next level process that he utilizes to optimize himself and his surgical results. His pre-procedure flow state preparation, his specific use of visualization, and even his detailed post-procedural journaling and subsequent deep dive into each result help illustrate his obsession, his passion, and how he achieves the results that have set him apart.
