Dr. Ruff IV's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Ruff IV "As a child, Paul adored his grandfather, who was a highly respected obstetrician-gynecologist. Paul didn't know exactly what that meant, but he knew that his grandfather helped people. His grandfather's joy and enthusiasm for his work showed. That passion sparked Paul's own dream, one he's realized as one of the top cosmetic plastic surgeons in Washington, D.C. Dr. Ruff returned to the area where he grew up and opened West End Plastic Surgery, establishing his reputation as plastic surgeon committed to the surrounding communities, such as Reston, Arlington, and Alexandria. Paul attended Gonzaga College High School, graduating with honors. After, he continued his Jesuit education in college at Georgetown University. These were transformative years. It was at GU, volunteering with the Georgetown Emergency Response Medical Service (GERMS), that Paul was first exposed to patient care. "The initial experiences I had while volunteering for GERMS cemented my resolve that medicine was what I truly wanted to do. I was helping people in need. This brought me both joy and compassion for people." After graduating from GU, Paul chose to enter one of the most challenging medical programs in the nation at Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) in Norfolk, Virginia. "I chose to go there because it was one of the best programs for OB-GYNs. At that time my goal was still to be an OB-GYN like my grandfather," Paul commented. EVMS also had a top plastic surgery program at the time. Following his graduation from EVMS, Dr. Ruff performed his general surgery residency and surgical critical care residency and was the chief administrative resident at Washington Hospital Center, spending 6 years there. Throughout his residencies, Dr. Ruff has been recognized for exceptional skill and compassionate care as a plastic surgeon. He was awarded the Gould Award from Washington Hospital Center and the Chairman's Prize at UCSD. Dr. Ruff was appointed Assistant Professor of Clinical Plastic Surgery by the Georgetown University Office of Faculty and Academic Affairs based on recommendation of the Department Chair and Committee on Appointments and Promotions of the School of Medicine."
