Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, for which he received grant support from the Office of Naval Research and the Plastic Surgery Foundation.

Joseph (Alex) Kelamis, M.D.
Joseph Kelamis

Dr. Joseph (Alex) Kelamis was accepted into the Johns Hopkins Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery training program upon graduation from medical school at Oklahoma University in 2008.  He was one of only two residents accepted into the seven-year combined training program when there were over 350 applicants nationally for the two positions that year.  He is currently in his last year of training and serves as one of four Chief Residents.

Alex is a native resident of Oklahoma.  He received his undergraduate degree in Biochemistry from the University of Kansas in 2004.  Thereafter, he immediately entered medical school.  After beginning his plastic surgery training at Johns Hopkins, he also completed one year of dedicated research which focused on face transplantation, microsurgical reconstruction and craniofacial trauma.  He was one of only several plastic surgery residents nationally whose research was accepted for formal presentation at the 2011 American Association of Plastic Surgeons.  Alex has also authored and co-authored multiple journal articles in the field of plastic surgery, including co-authoring multiple textbooks for plastic surgery.  Grateful for the opportunities given to him early in his career, Alex attributes a tremendous amount of his success not only to his attending plastic surgeons, but also to his co-residents that he has had the privilege of working with over the years. 

His interests within the field of plastic surgery are not narrowed by any degree; his interests within the specialty of aesthetic plastic surgery are no exception.  The seven-year combined plastic surgery training program has enabled Alex to continually focus on all areas of plastic surgery at an institution committed to creating leaders within its field.  Becoming a true master of aesthetic plastic surgery is a goal which continues throughout one’s career and requires an early recognition to all areas of its artistic and scientific components.  Alex has committed himself to this end and will continue to achieve his success while keeping his patient’s safety, concerns and goals at the forefront of his pursuit.
