About

Bio

Dr. Medalie of Cleveland Plastic Surgery prides himself on being at the forefront of plastic surgical technique. He was recently voted by the Best Doctors, Inc as one of the best plastic surgeons in America (2009-2010). He was then named by US News as one of America’s ‘Top Doctors’, based on a survey by Castle Connolly in 2011. Dr. Medalie is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon who originally hails from the east coast, having grown up in Washington D.C. and lived in both Boston and New York City. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University and then studied art in New York City at Parsons School of Design and the Art Student’s League, prior to entering Cornell University Medical College. After his third year of medical school, he spent a year in Paris conducting research, returning to Cornell for his fourth year to receive his Doctorate of Medicine with early membership in the honor society, Alpha Omega Alpha. At graduation, he and two classmates were recognized as the top three medical students in the graduating class. He then received the honor of being the first physician ever accepted into the new and highly regarded University of Pittsburgh Medical Center integrated plastic surgery training program. This comprehensive program combines six years of general and plastic surgery training with two additional years of intensive research. Dr. Medalie decided to spend those two years at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Shriners Burns Institute as a surgical research fellow studying gene therapy and skin tissue engineering. Upon completion of his training, he was appointed assistant professor of plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky. He remained there as an attending surgeon and director of the burn/wound clinic for three years prior to moving to Cleveland to be closer to family. For the next 4 years, he served as an assistant professor at University Hospitals and Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, and Chief of plastic surgery at the Cleveland VA Medical Center. He is now pleased to announce his full time affiliation with Metrohealth Medical Center in Cleveland and the Cleveland Clinic (adjunct teaching faculty) and his continued affiliation with Case Western Reserve Medical School.
