Dr. Loeb chaired the Executive Committee at the Center for Specialty Care for nine years - this is a four operating room Ambulatory Surgery Center on 69th and Park Avenue. In 1996 he built his own ambulatory operating room and moved his practice to 68th Street. In 2001 Dr. Loeb finished a new larger facility and moved to 80th and Fifth.

He has contributed chapters to numerous books and is still actively involved in teaching and medical education. He received national recognition in 1986 for his work in face transplant. He outlined and designed the current face transplant you read about and even successfully did it in live Baboons back in 1986!

Dr. Loeb has also been an innovator in liposuction and even has special “micro liposuction” instruments made for him. He has performed liposuction in over 8,000 areas over 22 years. Dr. Loeb believes in natural looking results. Perhaps he is best known for the “nose job” he performed on Paula Jones back in 1998.
