Ronald V. DeMars MD
About the Practice
Dr. DeMars understands and respects that every patient is unique, with different desires. He doesn’t regard plastic surgery as a one-size-fits-all solution; rather, he considers each patient as an individual and suggests treatments tailored around their needs. But regardless of which treatment a patient chooses, there are two constants: a pleasant treatment experience and beautiful surgical results.
Dr. DeMars is supported by an equally talented and capable team of professionals. He works with a board-certified anesthesiologist to monitor the plastic surgery process and enhance both the safety and comfort of all patients. The surgical nurses and attending technicians at Dr. DeMars’ office also have years of experience and are dedicated to providing the best possible patient care. Some of Dr. DeMars’ staff members have worked with him for more than 20 years!
Background & Certification
Dr. DeMars is certified by the American Board of General Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery. These certifications illustrate his dedication and expertise in the science and art of plastic surgery. He achieved these certifications after a strenuous testing process and peer evaluations. As a double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. DeMars offers his Vancouver and Portland plastic surgery patients a unique combination of surgical talent, artistic vision and impeccable bedside manner.
Dr. DeMars received his Bachelor of Science degree from Texas Christian University and earned his Doctor of Medicine degree from Oregon Health Sciences University. He participated in a select internship program through Ben Taub General Hospital in Houston before serving as a medical officer in the Navy.
During the eight years he served with the U.S. Navy, Dr. DeMars completed his general surgery residency at the U.S. Naval Hospital in Oakland, California. After leaving the service, he fulfilled his plastic surgery residency requirements at Pennsylvania State University’s Milton S. Hershey Medical Center before opening a private practice in his hometown of Portland, Oregon in 1982.
