Dr. Carl Truesdale is a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. He is also the only African American specializing in facial plastic surgery in Beverly Hills, CA. Let’s learn how he began his successful private practice in Beverly Hills.
Dr. Carl Truesdale was born and raised in the small town of Corning, New York, by a Chemist father and an artistic mother. The pursuit of his career in medicine began when his little brother died of a rare genetic disorder.
He is very intelligent and completed high school with 26 college credits. He went to Morehouse University, where he earned a full scholarship and graduated summa cum laude with a double major in Biology and Spanish. During vacations, he worked at Corning Inc.’s biologic science division. Here, he received his first patent on a material that allowed stem cells to grow in a synthetic environment.
Later, he applied for medical school, and although he was accepted into all fourteen schools, he chose to attend the University of Pennsylvania. There, he decided to become a surgeon specializing in Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery. During this time, he met his future wife, a Spelman College alumna pursuing graduate school at the University of Pennsylvania.
After medical school, he completed a five-year residency at the University of Michigan in the top-ranked ENT/Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery program, where he was published in several medical journals. He also gave presentations at medical seminars, conferences, and professional organizations.
