"Every aspect of my experience — from my start in general surgery to my advanced training in craniofacial plastic surgery — comes into play when I meet with a patient. It gives me a clearer picture of how I can create the results patients want." —Dr. Vieira
Dr. Vieira began as a general surgeon, but decided to pursue 5 years of additional training, with a specialization in craniofacial plastic surgery. Pairing his focused expertise with a strong background in general surgery, Dr. Vieira brings a well-rounded and knowledgeable perspective to every patient interaction.
It was his professional experience that refined his ability to communicate effectively with patients. "I dealt with complex disease processes during my 5 years of general surgery training, and I learned to evaluate and treat cosmetic conditions during 5 years of plastic surgery training," he says. "But my years in practice taught me how to be a good doctor."
Born in Portugal, Dr. Vieira is fluent in Portuguese and also speaks Spanish.
