Education and Training

His passion for plastic surgery led him to dedicate one full year of this training to research where he investigated methods to speed and improve wound healing in a laboratory funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). His efforts earned him a coveted spot in the plastic surgery training program at The Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas.
