His specialty is microvascular surgery, including breast reconstruction, head and neck reconstruction, extremity salvage, and hand surgery. Dr. Carey is certified by The American Board of Surgery. He is also a Member of the American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery and Plastic Surgery Research Council.

    Dr. Carey is the Chief of Plastic Surgery and attending surgeon in the Burn Unit of the Los Angeles County Hospital. He directs the care of complex multisystem injuries, including critically injured adult and pediatric patients in the Burn Unit. He also directs the education of plastic surgery and general surgery residents, as the associate program director in plastic surgery.

    In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Carey’s research interests include surgical education, breast reconstruction, and extremity salvage. He collaborates with colleagues from other disciplines as the Assistant Director of the USC Fresh Tissue dissection laboratory, where complex models of surgical simulation are used to educate surgeons of the next generation.

    Dr. Carey’s education includes a general surgery residency at USC, and a plastic surgery residency at USC. He also completed a Microvascular surgery fellowship at Stanford University. Dr. Carey received his medical degree from USC and his undergraduate degree from UC Berkeley. He also completed a master’s degree in Anatomy at USC.
