Welcome, Dr. Marilyn Nguyen!
In September, Marilyn Nguyen, MD joined VHC Physician Group–Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.
Dr. Nguyen is a plastic surgeon specializing in breast reconstruction and is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. She has written multiple medical articles for peer-reviewed publication. “Something drew me to working with cancer patients. And I’ve always been interested in women’s health,” says Dr. Nguyen.“Reconstructive surgery for women with breast cancer was a natural fit for me.”
Dr. Nguyen received her undergraduate degree from Duke University and medical degree from The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. She completed her plastic surgery residency at Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, and fellowship in microsurgery and breast reconstruction at Mercy Medical Center, Baltimore. She has practiced with the Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group for five years, and served as chief of the department of plastic and reconstructive surgery in her last year.
“I have experience in all methods of breast reconstruction, including breast conserving surgery, implants and DIEP flap surgery,” says Dr. Nguyen. “Every patient has different needs and we tailor our approach to meet them.”
