Daniel Man, M.D. | Allied Professional Award
Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
Boca Raton, Florida

Dr. Daniel Man, a distinguished, world-renowned plastic and reconstructive surgeon, believes that “there is beauty in all things.” Since 2001, Dr. Man has been making a difference in the Boca Raton, Florida, community. In coordination with Palm Beach County Victim Services, Dr. Man has offered a unique model program to physically injured victims of domestic violence. 

Dr. Man recognizes that physically injured victims of domestic violence are reminded daily, by their scars and injuries, of the pain, violence, loss of trust, and broken dreams they have suffered. In coordination with Palm Beach County Victim Services, Dr. Man has helped victims of domestic violence restore their lives by reconstructing battered faces mutilated by acts of violence. 

The victims who participate in this remarkable program are encouraged to provide a letter highlighting their future hopes and dreams, attend a consultation with Dr. Man with the support of an advocate, provide a “before” and “after” photo, and share their experiences with the community so that other victims will know they are not alone. 

For victims of domestic violence, the community, and medical surgeons across the Nation, Dr. Man has successfully shown that a blend of medicine, science, art, and hope can transform one individual at a time. Dr. Man’s “generosity,” “commitment,” and “inspiration to those around him,” have been recognized by Florida’s Governor, two U.S. Senators, and a U.S. Congressman, and have been highlighted in local and national news media. 

Dr. Man has received the 2004 Physician Hero Finalist Award in Palm Beach County and the 2001 Humanitarian of the Year Award from Palm Beach County Victim Services. The City of Boca Raton has named June 20 “Dr. Daniel Man Day,” in recognition of Dr. Man’s “humanitarian contributions.” 

Dr. Daniel Man was nominated by Nancy A. Dixon, Director, Palm Beach County Victim Services Division, West Palm Beach, Florida.
