Rodney B. Young, III, M.D.
Background & Specialties
American Board of Plastic Surgery
Certification by an ABMS Member Board has long been considered the gold standard in physician credentialing and has prompted both the medical community and patients to now inquire, with greater frequency, whether or not a physician is board certified. Board certification through the ABMS, demonstrates a physician’s exceptional expertise in a particular specialty and/or subspecialty of medical practice. Be sure to check the credentials of any surgeon you are considering, and make sure that he or she is board-certified in plastic surgery. We believe the most informed patient is the best patient. Your health is most important, ask questions and do your research when selecting the right doctor and practice for you.
From an early age, Dr. Young wanted to be a physician. He chose plastic surgery because it incorporated creativity with science. He finds his work rewarding because for more than two decades he has witnessed his patients’ change not only physically but also through an increased self-confidence.
In addition to his private practice, Dr. Young is an Associate Professor at the Medical University of South Carolina. He has been on active staff since 1987. This appointment not only fulfills his desire to teach and to give back to his profession, it also keeps him current in the latest plastic surgery techniques and advances.
