Dr. Devgan was featured in The New York Times on May 1, 2017, for her expertise as a board-certified plastic surgeon.
In addition to cosmetic surgery, Dr. Devgan is also trained in the full spectrum of reconstructive surgery, including hand surgery.
In this article, Times reporter Margaux Laskey highlighted the risks of kitchen injuries sustained when cutting an avocado. She touched on the dangers that come with cutting an avocado, the causes of avocado-related hand injuries, and what to do if you end up slicing your hand instead of the avocado.
Dr. Devgan gave her expert advice on how to handle an avocado injury, whether large or small. “The first thing you want to do is hold pressure on the area that is bleeding. If there are any amputated parts, they can be put in a plastic bag and placed on ice. I suggest going to the emergency room or calling your doctor, as it’s important to be evaluated by a hand specialist to make sure you don’t have any injuries to nerves, vessels, tendons or bones.”
