Dr. Chow is a fellowship trained surgeon who is double board certified in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery as well as head and neck surgery. As the son of an architect and an engineer, he discovered a passion for both art and science early in life, and realized that facial plastic surgery combined the best aspects of each. He graduated with honors while triple-majoring in Molecular and Cellular Biology, Biochemistry, and East Asian Studies at the University of Arizona by maintaining a perfect grade point average and submitting theses in both biology and Chinese history. He then went on to attend the Yale University School of Medicine, where he was awarded a Howard Hughes Medical Institute research fellowship and spent a year studying blood vessel growth and development under low oxygen conditions. After obtaining his medical degree, he completed a residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the Yale University School of Medicine. As the chief resident during his final year, he was also given the position of Clinical Instructor, teaching junior residents and medical students as part of his duties. Dr. Chow was then accepted into one of just forty fellowship programs across the country that are recognized by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, training with the Academy’s recent president.
