Dr. Daniel Durand
Your plastic surgeon
Dr Durand graduated from McGill University Medical school in 1986, and after completing a surgical internship was awarded a license to practice medicine in 1987.
He continued to train in a formal general surgery training program until 1990, when he was admitted as one of only two accepted candidates, out of a field of hundreds, to train within the context of an internationally and board recognized training program to become a plastic surgeon. As if the demands of a surgical residency training program were not enough, Dr Durand also chose to study and complete a Master’s Degree in experimental surgery at McGill University concomitantly with his surgical training. During this time, he published peer reviewed papers and was invited to speak at numerous surgical meetings including those of the American College of Surgeons, the American Society of Plastic Surgery, The plastic surgery research council, and the Quebec society of plastic surgeons, to name a few.
In 1992 Dr Durand Graduated and received degrees from both of these two programs; obtaining a Master’s Degree and also graduating from one of the country’s most prestigious surgical programs. Wanting to refine his skills even further, Dr Durand then traveled to Los Angeles, where he completed an additional year of plastic surgery sub specialty training at the University of Southern California.
In 1993, Dr Durand returned to his native Montreal, to deliver these finely honed skills and serve the population where he grew up. In 1994 he passed all necessary examinations and was recognized by, and he was admitted as a Fellow, to the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada (FRCSC).
In a likewise fashion, in 1996, he completed all necessary examinations and steps to be accredited by the American Board of Plastic Surgery(ABPS); and he was subsequently recognized and admitted as a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS) shortly thereafter, in 1997. Since 2001, Dr Durand has had the honor of sitting on the examination board for the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada, and firmly believes in their governing principals which require that each and every patient is entitled to the best possible plastic surgical care possible.
Today, Dr Durand is in private practice and serves the plastic surgery needs of the Greater Montreal Area. He prides himself on a unique, professional, and individual approach to every patient that he serves.
