Dr. Luis Rios, Jr. is both a plastic surgeon and the son of a plastic surgeon. His father, Dr. Luis Rios, Sr., had founded Rios Center for Plastic Surgery in the 1970s. The two men worked as partners until Dr. Rios, Sr. retired in 2004.
After earning his Bachelor’s degree in biology at Harvard and his medical degree at Southwestern Medical School, Dr. Rios served a residency at the University of California, where he became the Chief Resident of Surgery. He then completed a fellowship in hand surgery at Baylor College of Medicine.
Dr. Rios has earned board certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He is also affiliated with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, and the Society of Plastic Surgical Skin Care Specialists.
Why is Board Certification Important?
Board certification indicates that a doctor is willing to go the extra mile to learn the latest methods and technologies of their specialty to better serve their patients. Unlike earning a medical degree or securing a license, getting board certified isn’t mandatory. It also requires extensive testing and peer evaluation. In addition, the doctor has to stay on top of the latest developments in their field to keep their certification.
A patient who goes to a board-certified plastic surgeon will, thus, have the assurance that their doctor knows all of the newest treatments in their discipline. They can also be confident that their doctor will also have access to the best facilities and equipment.
