About Pearlman Hicks
Dr. Pearlman D. Hicks was born in Hamilton, Ohio. He attended public high school there before completing his undergraduate education at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He graduated in 1968 with a B.A. degree in Biological Sciences. After completing four years of medical school at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, he completed a five year general surgical residency at Case Western Reserve University Hospitals in Cleveland, Ohio in 1977. From 1976-1977 he was Chief Surgical Resident at University Hospitals. He returned to Massachusetts and completed his two years of *plastic surgical* residency at Harvard University. In his last year he was Chief Resident in Plastic Surgery at both Boston Children’s Hospital and the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital. Because of the wide range of procedures and the complex skills required for plastic surgery, the plastic surgery residency is the longest of any specialty except cardiac surgery.
