Karam Badran, MD
Job TitleHead and Neck Surgeon
Having grown up in the SF Bay Area I am proud to provide expert care in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery as well as otolaryngology.
I am fortunate to have completed all of my training within the University of California. I graduated from UC San Diego (Muir college) with honors and athletic accolades. I then earned my medical degree from UC Irvine with a distinction in research and inducted to the AOA honor society. Thereafter, I completed a five-year surgical residency at UCLA in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery and completed further subspecialty training in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at UCSF. My desire to improve patient satisfaction, optimize surgical techniques, and advance patient outcomes have resulted in over 40 surgical research publications in and over 100 presentations internationally.
Roles and Responsibilities
As a fellowship-trained facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, I maintain a practice in comprehensive otolaryngology through the head and neck surgery department; with a focus on rhinoplasty, facial reconstruction following skin cancer and mohs surgery, craniofacial trauma, and the treatment of facial paralysis. Through our Cosmetic Services/Facial Plastic Surgery Division, (www.kpcosmeticservices.com) I offer a wide variety of facial aesthetic and rejuvenation procedures with an individualistic patient-centered philosophy.
Our staff are wonderful! The secretaries, medical assistants, and nurses are attentive, professional, and friendly. They are one of the greatest assets to our department.
The physicians in both the head and neck surgery and cosmetic services department are fantastic to work with and provide excellent, caring, compassionate, and individualized patient care. I consider many of these physicians my closest friends.
Hobbies and Interests
I enjoy cycling, basketball, rowing, and being outdoors.
