Plastic SurgeonThe youngest of nine children, Dr. Pham came to the United States with his family at the age of 10 and settled in Southern California, where he calls home.
After finishing medical school at UCLA, Dr. Pham began his General Surgery training at Marshall University, where he also served as the chief resident. It was during this time that he discovered his passion for plastic surgery.
Recognizing that plastic surgery requires in-depth knowledge of wound healing for optimal aesthetic outcomes and patient satisfaction, Dr. Pham conducted clinical research examining the role of stem cells in wound healing.
Dr. Pham then went on to complete a Plastic Surgery residency at the Medical College of Georgia.
Dr. Pham believes in treating his patients as if they were his own family, with utmost respect and warmth. “Surgery,” he believes, “is a one-day event for the surgeon, but it is often a lifetime event for the patient. That is why I believe that it is imperative for a surgeon to have extensive training not only to obtain excellent results, but to put patient safety above all else.”
“Surgery…is often a lifetime event for the patient.”
In his personal time, Dr. Pham enjoys playing the piano, fishing, cooking, and improving his photography skills. His lifelong dream is to be able to participate in a medical mission at least once a year where he can use his skills and knowledge to help those who are less fortunate.
