Truman Medical Centers Welcomes Plastic Surgeon Carol Ann Aylward, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Carol Ann Aylward, M.D., F.A.C.S.Truman Medical Centers (TMC) welcomes plastic and reconstructive surgeon Carol Ann Aylward, M.D., F.A.C.S., to the TMC Medical Staff. Dr. Aylward grew up in Kansas City and received her medical degree from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine (UMKC).

“Dr. Aylward brings to the patients of TMC and the Kansas City community over 20 years of Plastic Surgical expertise,,” said TMC Chief Medical Officer Mark Steele, MD. “She most recently provided care to the Hilton Head, South Carolina area and her skills,  personal drive, and strong attention to service excellence   fits perfectly with TMC’s overall goal of providing our patients with  exceptional care,.”

Dr. Aylward has dedicated her career to helping patients — from cosmetic enhancement of the face and body to major reconstructive procedures for those who have suffered from a traumatic injury or illness. Her services at TMC will include breast cancer reconstruction, skin lesion and cancer removal, endoscopic procedures (i.e., hand/carpal tunnel release) and cosmetic procedures such as body contouring, facelifts, Botox injections and fillers. She will have offices at TMC Hospital Hill and TMC Lakewood and perform surgery at the state-of-the-art TMC Lakewood Surgery Center.

“I am a breast cancer survivor and sensitive to the needs and worries that my patients feel about the look of their bodies, especially during or following a traumatic illness or injury,” said Dr. Aylward. “I am thrilled to return to Kansas City and enjoy the academic and team-based care environment that TMC offers patients, allowing me to get to know them individually with the goal being their 110 percent comfort level with my expertise as their care provider.”

After earning her medical degree from UMKC, she completed her 5-year general surgery residency at Wright State University (Dayton, OH) and her plastic surgery residency at Medical University of South Carolina (Charleston). Dr. Aylward was previously a partner of both Finger & Associates and Savannah Plastic Surgery Associates ((Savannah, GA). She is also a volunteer with Medical Aid for Children of Latin America. She is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons, a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, and a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
