Why Did You Decide to Become a Plastic Surgeon?
As a kid, Dr. Linville would regularly go around with a stethoscope, listening to his family’s heart and lungs until they could not take it any longer. He played the game Operation relentlessly as well and dressed up as a doctor on Halloween three years in a row! During his time in medical school, he realized that he had a drive to pursue surgery in particular, which led to a lifelong interest in the beauty and technical mastery of plastic surgery. Today, he couldn’t imagine having any other job.
Where Did You Study Medicine?
Dr. Linville wanted to attend the hardest general surgery program he could find for his education, which is how he ended up at the University of Texas at Houston. Those five years were demanding but defining as well, helping him transition from a wide-eyed novice to a chief resident who could confidently run the show. After taking a quick break to marry his beautiful wife, he pursued his plastic surgery residency/fellowship at Ohio State University and trained under some of the most respected plastic surgeons around the world, receiving extensive training in aesthetic surgery of the face/breast/body, microsurgical techniques, and more.
