Bio

Dr. Hove is a fully licensed surgeon, dual board-certified in facial plastic surgery and also in otolaryngology- head neck surgery. He has a professional background that places him at the top of his field. Although originally from California, Dr. Hove grew up in southeast Pennsylvania. His artistic talents drew his interest to the field of plastic surgery at an early age, and he knew in junior high school that was where he was headed. During his undergraduate education, he achieved standing on the Dean's List of Cornell University , graduating with a degree in chemistry. He then attended Temple University Medical School in Philadelphia, accumulating multiple clinical and academic honors, ultimately placing him in the top of his class with selection to Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society . He underwent rigorous internship and residency training in otolaryngology-head neck surgery at Albany Medical Center Hospital , gaining extensive hands-on experience focused solely on the critically intricate anatomy of the face, head neck. His research efforts gained several awards, leading to publications, culminating in the AMA's distinguished Charles F. Ferguson Clinical research award for his work in pediatric facial trauma. After completing his chief residency, he was selected as one of only 38 physicians nationwide to receive additional subspecialty training in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. Stanford University selected him for this intense training, and to serve as their clinical instructor to their resident physicians. During this tenure, Dr. Hove gained further surgical expertise and skills directly handed down from international leaders in the field located on the west coast- Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, San Francisco, and Sacramento.
