Professional Statement

Dr. Tiner is an established, board certified, Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon who has been serving the Pasadena area for over a decade. Well known in the community and with a unique breadth of training among Pasadena Surgeons, Dr. Tiner has treated thousands of patients ranging from traditional cosmetic cases, to weight-loss patients, breast cancer survivors, and children with congenital defects such as cleft lip and palate. Dr. Tiner received his specialized training from a number of prestigious institutions across the country. He began his medical career unusually with a degree in dentistry from Northwestern University followed by a fellowship in oral and maxillofacial surgery at Cook County Hospital in Chicago. Dissatisfied with the limited scope of his practice, he went on to get an MD at Medical College of Virginia; subsequently training in General Surgery and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Huntington Hospital – here in Pasadena – and University of Tennessee respectively. It is clear from both his success in dentistry as well as Plastic and Reconstructive surgery that Dr. Tiner possesses the creative artistic value to construct personalized cosmetic treatment plans, addressing the specific aesthetic and functional needs of his patients, as well as the technical skills to ensure exceptional outcomes.
