He was able to publish several papers in respected medical journals and to present and teach at medical meetings around the world. He also served as Chief Resident.
Many surgeons move into private practice after medical school and residency, but Dr. Seeley’s desire to become a top doctor in his chosen field led him to pursue a double board certified in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF). Here, he mastered his craft under the tutelage of two of the world’s most highly regarded experts in the field, Drs. Corey Maas and Sheldon Kabaker. Having completed this level of training, he is one of a select few physicians to be recognized as a Graduate Fellow in Hair Restoration Surgery.
