Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 09, 2013
Marietta Plastic Surgery is proud to announce plastic surgeon, Dr. John D. Symbas, has earned his Board Certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
Board certification in plastic surgery is an important process. After successful completion of a residency program in plastic surgery, the candidates must pass a written examination that can be taken approximately 3 months after completion of residency. The candidate must then collect his or her cases over a period of a little less than a year and submit those to the board of plastic surgery.
After review of those cases, the board can then offer the candidate the opportunity to sit for the oral examination. During the oral examination, one is tested both on the cases that he or she submits, as well as cases that the board chooses as "unknown" cases to test the candidate on. The candidate's performance is then reviewed to determine whether or not to board certify that person.
“The process of board certification is a long and extensive one, but also a very important one,” said Atlanta plastic surgeon Dr. John D. Symbas. “Board certification in plastic surgery should be something that patients understand and consider when choosing a plastic surgeon. I am proud to have earned the certification.”
Dr. John D. Symbas is trained in breast surgery, reconstructive surgery, facial surgery, and body contouring plastic surgery procedures.
Marietta Plastic Surgery has a fully accredited surgery center and proudly serves plastic surgery patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Woodstock, Georgia, and surrounding areas. They are board certified and provide the latest technology, and best practices for patient safety.
