Meet The Salt Lake City, Utah Team

Dr. Ward

Dr. Ward is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon practicing in Utah. Dr. Ward is a native Utahn and attended medical school at the University of Utah where he finished at the top of his class and was inducted into the prestigious honor society, Alpha Omega Alpha, which recognizes only the very top medical students across the country. While at the University of Utah, he founded a program that runs to this day and aims to introduce rural medical students across the state to the field of medicine. This work resulted in the Association of American Medical Students providing Dr. Ward’s program a prestigious grant to allow it to continue long term.

Following medical school, Dr. Ward was honored to be chosen to pursue his training in Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Michigan, arguably the top facial plastics training program in the world. Following residency, he pursued further training with a fellowship in facial plastic surgery where he also served on the faculty at the University of Michigan. This experience was one of the most meaningful experiences of his career as he had a chance to train with the internationally-recognized masters of facial plastic surgery at the University of Michigan. He was then recruited back to the University of Utah where he joined the faculty on the school of medicine.

Upon arrival at the University of Utah, he brought with him new techniques in facial plastic surgery that had not previously been performed in Utah or the Intermountain West, including advanced techniques in rhinoplasty, facelift, blepharoplasty, reconstruction after skin cancer removal, facial trauma, and the treatment of patients with facial paralysis.
