Having served in the U.S. Air Force for nearly 20 years, he understands that a single person can make a difference for a patient, for an organization, or for his or her country. Since entering private practice in 2003, he has remained active in both local and national plastic surgery associations, championing research and education with the goal of continually improving results for patients who undergo cosmetic or reconstructive plastic surgery. Dr. Edwards was responsible for patient safety legislation in Nevada called the Truth in Advertising Bill. Dr. Edwards was recently appointed by Gov. Sandoval to serve as a Board Member for the Nevada Board of Medical Examiners. These highlight Dr Edwards’ strong belief in patient safety.
