Edward Chang, MD
Job TitleHead and Neck Surgeon
I have had the pleasure of having inspirational role models during my years of training. Through that I realized the importance of being a teacher.
My past roles in the past included being an Assistant Professor in the Department of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery at New York-Presbyterian Medical Center (Columbia), where I was the Director of Facial Plastic Surgery Education.
Prior to that, I was the former Director of Facial Plastic Surgery at the University of South Florida (USF).
I continue to refine my knowledge and skills through teaching and having association with the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS). I am also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. My practices have been in Palo Alto CA, and recently in New York City.
I have traveled to Honduras as a visiting instructor in the department of plastic surgery. There, we have treated patients with facial maladies and have been involved in the training of Honduran physicians. I have organized and conducted multi-institutional courses in facial plastic surgery.
Because of the complex anatomy of the face, head, and neck and its visibility to all, I focus my practice on the surgical specialty of Otolaryngology /Head and Neck Surgery and the sub-specialty of Facial Plastic Surgery.
I am proud to have been able to join a fine group of physicians here at the Santa Rosa Medical Center, all of whom focus on excellent delivery of health care.
Roles and Responsibilities
I have several administrative roles in the medical center. I serve as Chief of Medical Education and the Assistant Chief of Head and Neck Surgery and Medical Legal Affairs.
Hobbies and interests
In my free time I enjoy snowboarding, mountain biking, motorcycling, photography and spending time with my family.
