Camille Cash, MD
A top plastic surgeon in Houston, Dr. Camille Cash is a recognized by patients and peers alike as a leader in her field. She has it all – specialized training and experience; an attentive, caring personality; and an aesthetic sense.
When it comes to selecting a doctor, above all it’s important to assess their qualifications carefully. Dr. Cash is double board certified in General Surgery and Plastic Surgery—in fact, she is the only female African American plastic surgeon in Houston and the entire state of Texas with this distinction. She is a member of a select group of plastic surgeons with the highest level of cosmetic surgical training and clinical experience. Upon graduating magna cum laude from Howard University in Washington, D.C., she returned to Houston to earn her M.D. from Baylor College of Medicine. Deciding to become a surgeon, she went on to complete a 5-year general surgery residency program and a 2-year residency program focused on plastic surgery techniques. During her surgical training she rotated through Brackenridge Hospital, The Children’s Hospital of Austin, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Memorial Hermann Hospital and St. Joseph Hospital. She was selected by her peers as “Resident of the Year” in 1998. As a chief resident in plastic surgery, she traveled to Lima, Peru with Operation San Jose on a medical mission to treat patients born with cleft lips and palates.
While the majority of her patients are men and women interested in cosmetic enhancement, she continues to devote a part of her practice to breast reconstruction. She is on the board of directors of the Sisters Network, Inc., a group that seeks to make reconstructive surgery more readily available to the underserved minority community. Even with a thriving private practice and an active family life, Dr. Cash finds time to devote to causes that are important to her. She is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and gives her time and support to the Catholic Schools of the Houston/Galveston Archdiocese. Dr. Cash is a board member and founding partner of Westside Surgical Hospital where she performs the majority of her surgeries. She describes her work as “double satisfaction” when she sees her patients both looking better and feeling better about themselves.
She is passionate about improving the lives of others, and also about the profession itself—its combination of artistry and medicine, fine details and the big picture, instant gratification and lasting change, new technologies and tried-and-true standards. By restoring form, function, and confidence, I have the honor and privilege of helping patients’ look and feel better about themselves.
