Dr. Chow is a double-board certified and fellowship trained surgeon who specializes in facial plastic and reconstructive 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.
Dr. Chow is also a member surgeon of Help Us Give Smiles (HUGS), a charitable organization dedicated to the reconstruction of facial birth defects, including cleft lip and cleft palate, as well as microtia, a condition in which children are born without the outer ear. …
