Dr. Derby's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Derby "Dr. Derby is a Florida native who left the state after obtaining his MD at the University of South Florida College of Medicine in Tampa. He then completed six years of comprehensive Plastic Surgery residency training at Southern Illinois University Institute for Plastic Surgery in Springfield, IL. After residency, he completed two years of elective aesthetic surgery fellowship study. The two additional fellowship years allowed Dr. Derby's patients to be placed in the hands of a very extensively and uniquely trained aesthetic and reconstructive surgeon. Dr. Derby regularly performs cosmetic surgery of the eyelids, face, breast and body. He also enjoys assisting his surgical colleagues in the Sarasota community with complex soft tissue reconstruction. "
