In-Depth Medical Training
Dr. Stridde received his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, where he majored in biology and psychology. While in college, he was also able to pursue his interest in photography, which began to lay the foundations for his education in the art of plastic surgery.
He went on to receive his medical degree from Northwestern University Medical School in 1983, where he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha medical school honor society. After graduation from medical school, Dr. Stridde started his plastic surgery training with a fellowship at Canniesburn Hospital in Scotland, under the direction of eminent plastic surgeon, Sir Ian McGregor. Following this fellowship, he returned to complete a general surgery internship and residency at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Hanover, Hew Hampshire, where he served as chief resident from 1988 through 1989. Concurrent with his chief residency, Dr. Stridde served as an instructor in surgery at Dartmouth Medical School.
Upon completion of his surgical residency, Dr. Stridde next moved to a microsurgery fellowship at Davies Medical Center in San Francisco, California. The final phase of Dr. Stridde's plastic surgery education was at the University of Washington, where he completed his residency in plastic surgery.

The Importance of Board Certification
Today, a great deal of confusion exists about what it truly means to be a "board certified" plastic surgeon. Unfortunately, in order to create an image of credibility, there are physicians with minimal education and training in plastic surgery will claim board certification without indicating what board they are certified by, or they will claim board certification by a board not recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS).
The ABMS was created in 1933 to inform the public that a certified specialist has the approved specialty education and training and has passed both qualifying and certifying examinations, assuring that he or she possesses the requisite skills to provide quality care in that specialty.
The American Board of Plastic Surgery was established as a major specialty board sanctioned by the ABMS in 1941 and is the only board that provides certification to plastic surgeons in the complete spectrum of plastic surgery. To ensure that you receive the best care, make sure to choose a plastic surgeon who is certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery.
