Dr. Finger was raised in the modest town of Marion, South Carolina. After graduating from Emory University and then Medical University of South Carolina, he traveled to Atlanta for an internship at Grady Memorial Hospital. This was followed by a general surgery residency at Tampa General Hospital, now a part of the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida.
In 1969 he joined the United States Air Force where he spent four years. It’s in the United States Air Force, which he entered during the Vietnam war, where he cultivated his indomitable spirit and where he completed his plastic surgery residency. Being chief resident of one of the largest birth defect clinics in the military and war injuries provided invaluable experience for a lifetime. In 1973 Dr. Finger became board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery; was honorably discharged as a Lieutenant Colonel from the United States Air Force; and married his treasured wife now of 40 years, Cheryl. And, he returned back to his home in the Southeast and set out to create the first outpatient plastic surgery center in Georgia. It’s been a career of “firsts” ever since.
Dr. Finger is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, and a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons and the Georgia Society of Plastic Surgeons. He has authored numerous articles in scientific journals, contributed to Plastic Surgery textbooks and authored and published the anti-aging book, Why Grow Old. To schedule your appointment click here
