About Dr. Schusterman

As a Board Certified plastic surgeon practicing in Houston, Dr. Schusterman established his reputation through his research and development of microsurgical reconstruction techniques in the aid of head, neck and breast cancer patients. The associated challenges have endowed him with considerable knowledge and understanding of the human body and have finely honed his surgical skills, particularly when it comes to plastic and cosmetic surgery.

Dr. Mark A Shusterman

Mark A. Schusterman, MD, FACS

Working with people in crisis, such as cancer patients, takes special people skills – empathy, compassion and caring. The spirit and emotions of the patient need as much attention as the body for the healing to be a complete success. Dr. Schusterman has learned those skills and applies them to his plastic and cosmetic surgery patients today.

A graduate of Emory University and the University of Louisville School of Medicine, Dr. Schusterman is in private practice in Houston, Texas, where his office is located in the heart of the Texas Medical Center.


As an educator, Dr. Schusterman remains current on the latest techniques and technologies in plastic and cosmetic surgery. His teaching experience includes lectures and scientific presentations at more than 200 educational symposia.
Dr. Schusterman has held many distinguished academic and professional appointments. His major tenure was at The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, where he held the prestigious Charles M. McBride Professorship in Surgical Oncology. He has served as a visiting professor at the Catholic University in Rome, The Cleveland Clinic, Duke University in North Carolina, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Mount Sinai Hospitals in New York, and Tata Hospital in Bombay, to name a few.
