Professional Statement

Amir Tahernia, MD enjoys challenges, be they academic, athletic, as head of a family, or as a plastic surgeon. As he says “excellence matters… a lot”. A native of New York, Dr. Tahernia spent his early years there before moving to the west coast and attending college at UCLA. He knew from early on in his medical training that he wanted to become a plastic and reconstructive surgeon. To him there was no other specialty in medicine that so nicely married science with art. It is this balance of science and artistry that drew him to the field and continues to excite him each day as he practices his craft. Dr. Tahernia has had an impeccable academic pedigree, having attended some of the finest institutions in the country. His education has taken him from UCLA to NYU School of Medicine and most recently Duke University. At UCLA he was elected to the elite Phi Beta Kappa society, which recognizes only a small fraction of undergraduates as the brightest students in the country. While at the NYU School of Medicine he won honors in Surgery. He completed a total of 7 years of General Surgery training, which included dedicated research in plastic and reconstructive surgery. This lead to several fine works resulting in publications and presentations at national meetings. Dr. Tahernia is a diplomat of both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery, putting him in an elite group of double board-certified surgeons. Dr. Tahernia is also an attending teaching faculty member in the division of Plastic Surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Dr. Tahernia was recently bestowed the honor of being named a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
