Not Your Typical Surgeon

Dr. Travis Shaw, M.D. is not your typical plastic surgeon. After spending 3 years teaching in Japan he turned his attention to medicine. While on a medical mission to Kenya, he was inspired by the needs of patients with facial deformities and decided to specialize in ENT and facial plastic surgery. Dr. Shaw takes a unique perspective gained from his experiences outside of medicine and uses this to build relationships with his patients.

“I want to make a personal connection with patients and their families. I try to not only find out what’s going on with the patient, but how it’s affecting his or her life, and the lives of others in the family. When I know patients on a personal level, it’s much easier to understand their concerns and needs,” he explains.
