Meet Dr. Brian Burns
Dr. Brian Burns, M.D., has dedicated his professional life to being the best in his chosen field of plastic surgery. As you read through his training and accomplishments, we are sure you will agree.
He is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. This is a rigorous and challenging board certification to achieve and maintain. A plastic surgeon’s board certification is one of the best indicators of his training. Every patient seeking plastic surgery should ensure that their surgeon possesses this essential credential.
Dr. Burns firmly believes that education is critical to success, so he voluntarily chose one of the longest training routes possible in order to achieve training second to none. He felt this was mandatory before beginning his solo practice of performing plastic surgery on his patients. After medical school at Texas Tech University, he first completed an entire General Surgery program at Maricopa Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona (6 years) and achieved board certification in this specialty. He then sought his plastic surgery training at The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas (3 years). This was a very intense combined residency training of 9 years as opposed to 5-7 years for many other plastic surgeons.
Being a seventh generation native Texan, he was happy to come to Victoria in 1993 and thereafter established his practice of plastic surgery. He quickly became very busy with his practice and also became very active in the community. He has been recognized by Texas Monthly as a Texas Super Doctor and has been selected by the Victoria Chamber of Commerce as the Member of the Year.
He has successfully become a respected member of the following prestigious organizations:
- American Society of Plastic Surgeons
- Texas Society of Plastic Surgeons
- Texas Medical Association
- Victoria County Medical Society (President 2004)
Dr. Burns performs his surgery at DeTar Hospital Navarro and at Citizens Medical Center. His office is on the DeTar Hospital Navarro campus where he has twice been the Chief of Surgery and was formerly Chief of the Medical Staff of Detar Healthcare Systems.
He has been very active in the community as President of the American Cancer Society board, President of Making the Grade and board member for Keep Victoria Beautiful. Additionally, he has served his country as a United States Army Reserve officer and was honorably discharged as a Lieutenant Colonel.
Rest assured that when you see Dr. Burns for your plastic surgery consultation you will find an intense yet compassionate surgeon that demands precision and excellence in his results. He is constantly studying and refining his expertise and is now concentrating his efforts in cosmetic surgery.
