Edmond A. Zingaro, M.D., F.A.C.S. has joined the Surgery Department at Howard Memorial Hospital. His services include Breast Reduction, Breast Reconstruction, Breast Augmentation, Face Lift, Brow Lift, Neck Lift, Eyelid Lift, Chin Augmentation, Ear Pinning and Tummy Tucks. In addition to plastic surgery, Dr. Zingaro will also be providing Botox and Dermal Fillers. Dr. Zingaro brings over 25 years of Plastic Surgery expertise to the hospital in addition to his professional practice as President and Owner of the Plastic Surgery Medical Group in San Francisco, California. Dr. Zingaro has studied and trained in both the United States and Europe. His education includes five year General Surgery residency, with one year as Chief Resident, at Nassau University Medical Center in New York, followed by an additional three year residency in Plastic Surgery, including one year as Chief Resident, at St. Francis Memorial Hospital in San Francisco under the leadership of one of the country's most respected plastic surgeons, Dr. Mark Gorney.

Dr. Zingaro is passionate about his work and believes in providing humanitarian care. It was at St. Francis Memorial Hospital that he began donating his time and surgical skills to the residents of Peru and Guatemala. As a resident, he was sent periodically to developing countries to care for those in need of reconstructive surgery, who could not afford such treatments. In reference to his work in Latin and South America he comments, "I'm often asked about the relationship between cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery and all I can say is that to be a good cosmetic surgeon, you have to be a good reconstructive plastic surgeon. As plastic surgeons, we are lucky to go to remote areas and, with simple surgical instruments, repair an infant's cleft lip and transform a life. The feeling of reward is beyond words."

"I wish to welcome Dr. Zingaro to our hospital and community," commented Kevin Erich, President and CEO of Howard Memorial Hospital. "I know our community will benefit from these outstanding services."

Dr. Zingaro is a Certified Diplomat of the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and Member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the California Society of Plastic Surgeons and the San Francisco Surgical Society. Dr. Zingaro is fluent in Italian.
