Mark Yazid, MD

Dr. Mark Yazid is a plastic and reconstructive surgeon with special interest in cosmetic surgery of the  breast and body, hand reconstruction, microsurgery, and sternal reconstruction. He is board certified in  general surgery by the American Board of Surgery and board eligible in plastic surgery.    

Dr. Yazid received bachelor's degrees in cellular and molecular biology and environmental science from  Johns Hopkins University. Throughout this time, he developed an interest in the medical field and was  selected to the Tri Beta Honor Society, achieved the Dean of Student Life award, and graduated with  university-wide and department honors.    

Following this, Dr. Yazid pursued a year of academic research at Johns Hopkins Medical Center  investigating novel genetic pancreatic cancer treatments. He sequentially attended medical school at  Pennsylvania State College of Medicine. During his rotations, Dr. Yazid fell in love with the field of  surgery and went on to complete his general surgery residency at Baylor University Medical Center in  Dallas, Texas. Dr. Yazid’s experience with two Level 1 trauma centers exposed him to an extensive  variety of complex pathologies and treatments. Seeing the significant chronic burden that injury from  trauma and disease left his patients in, Dr. Yazid was inspired to obtain further training at Houston  Methodist Hospital for a career in plastic and reconstructive surgery.   

During his time at Houston Methodist Hospital, Dr. Yazid learned all aspects of complex tissue  reconstruction, including microsurgical free tissue transfers, along with the most advanced procedures  for cosmetic surgical interventions. He was also able to complete rotations at Texas Children’s Hospital,  where he was exposed to congenital pediatric surgical reconstruction, and Memorial Hermann Trauma  Center, where he established a special fascination for hand and upper extremity surgery. Dr. Yazid then  took this passion and honed his training with an extra year in hand, upper extremity, and microvascular  surgery fellowship at the Medical College of Wisconsin. There, he learned the most advanced  treatments in upper extremity surgery, microvascular replantation, and peripheral nerve surgery from  leaders in plastic and orthopedic surgery.    

Dr. Yazid has a research interest in quality improvement initiatives for medical care, medicine  technology, peripheral nerve surgery, and graduate medical education initiatives for students and  residents. He also has a unique interest in academic ethics, professionalism, and bioethics, which he has  been part of since his time as an undergraduate student, ranging from the local hospital committee level  to the national leadership level. He has helped publish many manuscripts for peer review and spoken at  both local and national meetings for his research. Dr. Yazid looks forward to providing state-of-the-art  cosmetic, reconstructive, and hand surgery care for his patients. In his free time, Dr. Yazid enjoys outdoor activities, including scuba diving, biking, hiking, and rock climbing, as well as cooking. Dr. Yazid also speaks fluent French.
