Dr. Wilberto Cortés is a highly qualified, skilled and experienced plastic surgeon.
He graduated with the highest academic distinction from the Ponce School of Medicine, a US Accredited Medical School in Puerto Rico. From there, he was accepted in the highly competitive Integrated Residency Program in Plastic Surgery at the Medical College of Wisconsin. During that period, he did his research and traveled to South America where he completed a well-acclaimed landmark study that has been presented in prestigious fora nationwide and cited in books. Dr. Cortes is a prominent Board-Certified plastic surgeon who has earned a number of awards and distinctions during his medical studies and distinguished career. It must be underscored that becoming a plastic surgeon requires rigorous, intensive training in specialized surgical disciplines not usually done in general surgery and Dr. Cortes went through all that.
In his early years, Dr. Cortes was able to hone his skills while working with one of the best specialists in one of the highly acclaimed and respected plastic surgery facilities in the US. He gained mastery in body contouring procedures and other plastic surgery techniques, and passionately worked at raising the bar and upholding high standards of excellence in his specialized field.
Lyndon B. Johnson said, “The noblest search is the search for excellence.” Dr. Cortes was always searching for new ways to further refine his skills, find new approaches to achieve aesthetic improvements on the human body, and modernize and improve on traditional plastic surgery methods. After spending about seven years of relentless study and practice, he developed a number of cutting-edge techniques and procedures to help patients achieve their aesthetic goals.
