About Dr. Sanderson
I was born in Ankara, Turkey. My family and I immigrated to the United States when I was 7 years old. I spent the majority of my childhood in Long Island, New York. I attended Cornell University on a scholarship where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in microbiology. I received my Medical Degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston in 1984. I had the honor, while in Medical school, to be the Director of the National Student Research Forum and the Vice President of my class. Following medical school, I completed a comprehensive five year general surgery residency at the University Of Maryland Hospital And The Shock Trauma Institute in Baltimore. I completed my fellowship in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the Medical College of Virginia. I received extensive training in all aspects of plastic surgery – including aesthetic procedures, microsurgery, management of facial fractures, and complicated soft tissue injuries. I then spent time with several prominent plastic surgeons nationwide to further my education in my area of special interest – cosmetic procedures.
I am board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. In 1991, I established my private plastic surgery practice in Bellevue Washington and am currently in Kirkland. I hold staff privileges at Overlake Hospital Medical Center.
