Dr. Woods' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Woods "Dr. Robert H. Woods is a double board certified facial plastic surgeon in private practice in Scottsdale, Arizona. He has been caring for patients with facial cosmetic and reconstructive concerns for over twenty years. He was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona where he developed a passion for tennis and the arts. He became a nationally ranked tennis player, a college All American in tennis, a classical pianist and an artist. Dr. Woods athletic and artistic talents would complement his profession of facial plastic surgery and was the perfect match to give back and improve patients' lives. He obtained a Liberal Arts degree at Occidental College in Los Angeles, California with an emphasis on art, music, literature, and philosophy. Then he completed a Master's of Science degree in Biology and a degree in Medicine at the University of Arizona. This was followed by a six year residency training program at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Head and Neck Surgery, and a one year fellowship at the University of California, Irvine focusing entirely on Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Dr. Woods has donated services to a charitable organization, sponsored by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, to help victims of domestic violence. Here he had the opportunity to treat patients with facial scars and deformities, which they had incurred as a result of domestic violence. These were often very complicated and difficult cases, but assisting these patients provided some of the most rewarding experiences. This opportunity reinforced the idea of doing what you love and loving what you do while helping others is the most important thing in life. No matter what the circumstances or conditions may be, Dr. Woods treats every patient with the same high degree of respect, care, and kindness. Dr. Woods combines technical skill, knowledge, and experience with a highly developed sense of aesthetics to meet each patients' objectives. Over the years, he has refined his surgical technique to obtain the best possible result with the fewest complications and the fastest recovery. Achieving a natural, aesthetically appealing, lasting result is the foundation of his practice. From beginning to end, each step of the process is addressed with care, consideration, and compassion."

Dr. Woods recently saw my 5 year old daughter. I didn't feel comfortable going back to the ENT that put tubes in her ears because he lacked confidence and dismissed my concerns.
