Dr Boustred is Board Certified in Plastic Surgery by the South African College of Medicine and by the Medical Council of New Zealand. He is also Board Certified in General Surgery by the South African College of Medicine and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
All which are earned by rigorous examination and qualifications. Dr Boustred has been training American plastic surgeons at Penn State University for 7 years, but for him to hold a certificate by The American Board of Plastic Surgery, they required his surgery training be completed in the USA.
He is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and an Associate Member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Dr Boustred is also a member of the following Societies for Plastic Surgeons in the USA: Jurkiewicz Society (Emory University), American Cleft Palate – Craniofacial Association, Ivy Society Plastic Surgeons (Pennsylvania), Northeastern Society of Plastic Surgeons and the Christian Medical and Dental Society. He is also a member of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons.
Dr Boustred was born and raised in South Africa. He received his medical degree at the University Witwatersrand (a 6 year course) followed by internship at the Johannesburg academic hospital. His surgical residency of 5 years was at the University of Cape Town/Groote Schuur Hospital. A Neurosurgery fellowship completed this phase of his training and prepared him for medical mission work in Lesotho. He returned to a faculty position at the University of Cape Town academic hospital as an attending surgeon. After several years in this position, he decided to train in Plastic Surgery, completing another 3 years of residency at the same university hospital, including a full year in Pediatric Plastic Surgery. He completed additional (optional) training in Plastic Surgery at the prestigious unit at Emory University Hospital under the mentorship of Professors John Bostwick and Foad Nahai.
Dr Boustred’s special interests include pediatric and craniofacial surgery, cleft lip and palate, conditions affecting the face, both reconstructive and cosmetic, oculoplastic surgery and breast surgery. He does, however, enjoy the wide range of procedures offered by plastic surgery and practices the broad scope of the specialty.
Dr Boustred has spent 3 years doing medical mission work in Namibia, Zululand and Lesotho. On completing his Plastic Surgery training he returned to South Africa to part-time academic practice and private practice. With deteriorating conditions in South Africa he accepted a position in New Zealand at the academic hospital of the University of Otago in Christchurch, spending a year and a half in that beautiful country. He was then recruited back to the USA, to train Plastic Surgery residents at Penn State University/Hershey Medical Centre, where he has been for the past 7 years, as an Associate Professor in Plastic Surgery and Ophthalmology, and Co-Director of the Craniofacial Unit.
Dr Boustred has surgical privileges for all procedures in Fort Collins and in Loveland, Colorado, at these facilities: Poudre Valley Hospital, Harmony Surgery Center, Medical Center of the Rockies, Banner Fort Collins Medical Center, Skyline Surgery Center and McKee Medical Center.
Dr Boustred’s immigrant family’s search for a place and home that would best fit their lifestyle has led them to Fort Collins, where they relocated in August 2008. They love the mountains and outdoors, and family life and values are a very important priority.
