Background

Dr. Vernon comes to Johns Hopkins after completion of a five year residency program training exclusively in head and neck surgery at Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis. In residency, Dr. Vernon authored journal articles and book chapters in the field of otolaryngology and head and neck surgery, but became especially interested in the field of facial aesthetic and reconstructive surgery while training under his faculty.  Additionally, during residency he had the opportunity to travel to Nicaragua on a medical mission trip, providing reconstructive surgery to patients who otherwise have no access to such services. 

At Johns Hopkins Dr. Vernon will be training with Drs. Patrick Byrne, Ira Papel, Kofi Boahene, Lisa Ishi, and Shaun Desai to further advance his knowledge and clinical experience in facial aesthetic surgery, facial reconstruction following cancer resection and traumatic injuries and facial reanimation surgery for those with facial paralysis.
