Stephenie Poris, M.D.
I am a Floridian, born and raised in Satellite Beach near Cape Canaveral. I grew up a competitive cheerleader and figure skater with a love of science and the outdoors. My childhood experiences taught me the values of precision, poise, humility and respect. Becoming a surgeon was a natural choice as these values are the very backbone of training and practice. I pursued my passion and received my Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of Florida. While in college, I had the chance to intern in plastic surgery at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. It was then I realized I must become a plastic surgeon. I was enthralled by the intricacies and details of their surgeries and enamored by the dissection and surgical outcomes. Like an artist, the human body became the canvas, and the scalpel became a brush. Having my goal in mind, I remained true to my Florida roots and continued my medical education at Florida State University where I graduated and started the long journey through surgical training.
I spent five incredible years in general surgery residency with some of the nation’s best surgeons at Advent Health in Orlando, Florida. From there, it was time for a change of seasons as I matched in plastic surgery fellowship at Summa Health in Akron, Ohio. I have completed all surgical training, and I am currently board-certified in general surgery and board- eligible in plastic surgery. I look forward to sharing my talent and passion with you all as your newest plastic surgeon in Orlando, Florida!
