Nicholas K. Howland, M.D.
Dr. Howland was born and raised in Murray, Utah. Before pursuing his undergraduate degree at the University of Utah, he successfully fulfilled a 2-year church mission to St. Petersburg, Russia. He graduated cum laude from the University of Utah with a degree in Business Administration and minors in Chemistry and Russian Literature. He was early accepted into medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas. It was here that Dr. Howland began to do basic science and clinical research in the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery. As a top student in his graduating class, he was accepted among the nation’s top medical students into the highly competitive six-year integrated plastic and reconstructive residency program at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas.
During residency, Dr. Howland was prolific in his pursuit of furthering his knowledge in the field—he presented at over 20 local and national meetings as well as published several abstracts, journal articles, and book chapters. He had the privilege to rotate through and train with some of the best hospitals and plastic surgeons in the world: John Sealy Hospital, Shriners Burn Hospital for Children, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, St. Joseph Medical Center, The Cronin-Brauer Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic at Shriners Hospital, and Houston Methodist St. John Hospital.
Dr. Howland has been blessed with two beautiful children, and loves nothing more than spending time with them. His hobbies include a very average golf game, the New York Times crossword puzzle, and reading anything he can get his hands on. He loves time with family at the lake or in the mountains.
Dr. Howland is committed to providing patients with a compassionate and comfortable experience on their plastic surgery journey. He utilizes only the most advanced and state-of-the-art surgical and non-surgical methods.
