Dr. Salem Samra has just become double board certified! In addition to being Board Certified in Plastic Surgery, Dr. Samra recently became Board Certified in Surgery of the Hand by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. To be eligible for board certification in surgery of the hand, a surgeon must be board certified in orthopedic surgery, plastic surgery, or general surgery and have completed a fellowship in hand surgery. If these requirements have been met, the hand surgeon submits a list of cases collected over a 15-month period to the Board for review. If the cases demonstrate that the surgeon has performed the full spectrum of hand surgery in his practice and the case list is approved, the surgeon is eligible to sit for a rigorous four-hour written examination that tests his or her fund of knowledge and understanding in the field of hand surgery. Dr. Salem Samra has completed all requirements and passed the exam, placing him in a select group of plastic surgeons nationwide who have attained this distinctive achievement. Dr. Samra is thrilled to be able to offer his patients the highest level of care and expertise in the practice of plastic and hand surgery. Read more about Dr. Salem Samra now…
