Dr. Chase Derrick & Dr. Chirag Mehta Are Board-Certified!

by / Wednesday, 06 February 2019 / Published in Plastic Surgery

Help us congratulate Chase Derrick, MD and Chirag Mehta, MD for passing their board exams—both esteemed plastic surgeons are board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS)! The rigorous review and examination process for certification follows many years of demanding education, training, and surgical experience for both Dr. Derrick and Dr. Mehta. The topics included in the exams cover the entire spectrum of plastic surgery, including cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. To achieve certification, candidates must first meet all educational requirements and provide patient cases for review by the board. Once candidates have successfully passed the review process, they may proceed to the challenging written and oral examinations.

The purpose of board certification and oversight is to ensure plastic surgeons uphold ABPS’s standards of ethics and safety, as well as possess the knowledge required to perform all aspects of the plastic surgery profession. Ultimately, knowledge that a plastic surgeon is board-certified can help patients make informed and confident decisions about who they choose for aesthetic and reconstructive surgery. Those who desire plastic surgery performed with the highest level of care and ethical standards are always encouraged to select a board-certified plastic surgeon, rather than a physician who simply offers aesthetic procedures.

With their board examinations now behind them, Dr. Derrick and Dr. Mehta are both looking forward to continuing their successful careers at Regional Plastic Surgery Center, supported by our team and their devoted patients!
