Dr. Taleisnik was born in Rochester, Minnesota in 1962, where his father Julio completed his orthopedic residency.

Dr. Andres, as he is known in the office, joined his father's group in September 1997 after completing extensive and rigorous training in plastic surgery and hand surgery.

Dr. Andres graduated in 1980 from Foothill High School in Tustin, ranked # 1 in a class of 570 students with a 4.0 GPA.

Dr. Andres attended Princeton University, where he majored in Biology. He graduated from Princeton in 1984 with a 3.9 GPA, receiving Summa Cum Laude honors. He was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and the Sigma Xi Scientific Research Honor Society. He also received Highest Honors in the Department of Biology and garnered the Senior Book Prize for his Thesis work. During the summers, he was employed in the laboratory of Dr. Alan Gazzaniga, a prominent local cardiothoracic surgeon, and also worked at Disneyland.

After graduating from Princeton, Dr. Andres returned to Southern California, where he attended medical school at UCLA. He was exposed to numerous innovative and nationally recognized plastic surgeons during medical school, such as Malcolm Lesavoy, Harvey Zarem and Timothy Miller. These outstanding surgeons and teachers prompted Dr. Andres' fascination with plastic surgery. He graduated from UCLA in 1988 with a 3.95 GPA, and was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society.

After completing general surgery training, Dr. Andres was selected to continue his training in plastic surgery at UCLA, one of the top three programs in the country. He received extensive experience in all facets of plastic surgery, including craniofacial, pediatric, microsurgery, oncologic, hand and aesthetic (cosmetic) surgery. He had the opportunity to learn from some of the top plastic surgeons in the world, including those that are the "Plastic Surgeons to the Stars" of Hollywood and Beverly Hills.

In 1996-1997, Dr. Andres and his growing family traveled to San Antonio, Texas to study Hand and Microsurgery at the renowned Hand Center of San Antonio under David Green, M.D. Following that year of wonderful experience, Dr. Andres returned home to Orange County to stay.
