Background & Certification
Because there are so many different board certifications, it can be difficult to decide which one is important. The only two that are associated with plastic surgeons are the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Osteopathic Association. There are many other boards that "certify" physicians, but they often do not have the requirements in testing and training that are necessary to be a good plastic surgeon. Our own Bivik Shah, Columbus plastic surgeon serving Dayton and the surrounding areas, is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Bivik Shah grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. He earned an electrical engineering degree from the University of Michigan before returning to Ohio to attend medical school at Ohio State University. Dr. Shah later joined the faculty of Ohio State University, where he was responsible for performing surgery on some of the city’s most complicated burn and reconstruction cases.
