Amit Bhrany, M.D.
Dr. Bhrany is double board-certified in facial plastic surgery and otolaryngology. He joined the University of Washington faculty in 2009. He trains other surgeons in facial plastic surgery and in head and neck surgery, both at the UW School of Medicine and as an invited speaker around the country. Originally from Michigan, he earned his bachelor's degree in biomedical engineering and a doctorate in medicine from Boston University, then completed his residency in otolaryngology - head and neck surgery at UW. After finishing residency, he was awarded fellowships in head and neck surgery and facial plastic surgery at the University of Auckland in New Zealand and at UW, respectively. During those two years of additional sub-specialty training, Dr. Bhrany developed skills for cosmetic facial plastic surgery, reconstructing all aspects of the head and neck, and head and neck cancer surgery. He dedicates his practice to all aspects of surgery of the face: aesthetic facial rejuvenation, facial reconstruction, and head and neck surgery.
