Steven Bengelsdorf, MD, FACS
Board Certified by the American Board of Surgery, our director Dr. Steven Bengelsdorf holds fellowship status with the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery as well as the American College of Surgeons. He was accepted into the prestigious Six-Year Medical Program at Boston University at the age of 17. The youngest student in his class, he graduated magna cum laude with a combined Bachelor of Arts and Doctor of Medicine degree.
Dr. Bengelsdorf earned honors in both Anatomy and Physiology in medical school, and went on to secure a highly competitive position in the Boston University Surgical Residency Program. Throughout this rigorous five-year program, he furthered his medical experience working with a diverse population of patients at the Boston VA Medical Center and the Boston City Hospital. Through this postgraduate training, he honed his skills in the area of trauma management, wounds, burns, and wound healing.
Dr. Bengelsdorf has been in practice for nearly 20 years, and has broad experience in general and minimally invasive surgery. His practice focuses on dermatologic and cosmetic surgery, facial aesthetics, and minimally invasive laser procedures.
Dr. Bengelsdorf first came to Middle Tennessee in 2003 when an urgent need arose for physicians at Ft. Campbell, KY because of the deployment of military surgeons to Iraq. After serving as a civilian physician for over a year, he became so enamored with Middle Tennessee that he decided to relocate permanently to the area with his wife and three children.
He continuously strives to bring the latest in medical advances to his patients, and participates extensively in postgraduate coursework. Dr. Bengelsdorf is a Physician Delegate to the Tennessee Medical Association. He has earned the Physicians Recognition Award with commendation from the American Medical Association, and he is a member of numerous medical organizations including the American College of Surgeons, the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery, and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. Dr. Bengelsdorf also volunteers his physician services at Mercy Community Healthcare.
