Returning to Baltimore over 25 years ago to reside permanently with Dr. Dean Kane, Lauri took on a role as Research Coordinator in the Department of Maternal and Child Health at Johns Hopkins School of Public Health and later became a faculty advisor to the Department as well. When Dr. Dean Kane chose to open his solo practice in plastic surgery in 1990, Lauri “temporarily” stopped working in public health to administrate her husband’s plastic surgery practice. Twenty-four years later, Dr. Dean and Lauri Kane are proud partners in their successful and well known Center for Cosmetic Surgery and Medspa.
