George Washington, M.D.

His Canvas, Painted

Each brushstroke reveals an artist’s vision and creation.

Dr. Washignton was born and raised in New Orleans, LA, and graduated Valedictorian from his high school and Cum Laude with distinguished honors from Xavier University of Louisiana. He earned his doctorate degree from Howard University College of Medicine and remained in Washington, DC to complete his general surgery residency training at Howard University Hospital. He then completed a rigorous examination process to become a Board-Certified General Surgeon by the American Board of Surgery.

Dr. Washington’s desire to improve psychosocial well-being by restoring natural form and function following losses caused by cancer resection and traumatic injury led him to continue his training in plastic and reconstructive surgery at The University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston (UTHSC-H). While he was there, he discovered an immense passion for microsurgery, specifically in breast reconstruction following cancer resection, gender affirmation, and comprehensive aesthetic surgeries. After completing his fellowship at UTHSC-H, he joined Linville Plastic Surgery and Hair Specialists Houston in Houston, Texas.
