Meet Dr. Banks in Washington, DC

Dr. Nia Banks is a board-certified plastic surgeon who treats patients in Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD and the surrounding communities. Dr. Banks received her surgical training from Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, where she completed the Integrated Residency Program in plastic and reconstructive surgery. As the first surgical resident to complete this program, Dr. Banks received invaluable training that allows her to provide the highest degree of expertise and knowledge of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery to her patients.

Dr. Banks believes that every patient is different, and there is no one aesthetic standard that suits all people. Because of this, she treats each and every patient as an individual and truly listens to their needs. Dr. Banks not only focuses on the appearance of each patient, but she also strives to improve the patient’s life by changing the way they feel about themselves. Dr. Banks remains on the cutting edge of the field of reconstructive surgery; she recently contributed a chapter on breast and trunk reconstruction to a book and continues to contribute to important surgical publications.

As a craniofacial fellow at the Hospital Necker-Enfants Malades in Paris, France, Dr. Banks provided reconstructive surgery for children with congenital anomalies. Her dedication to her patients is paramount, and her experiences have prepared her to treat a vast range of patients. Although she specializes in the areas of the face and breast, Dr. Banks is qualified to complete practically any plastic or reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Banks is the Chief of Plastic Surgery at Doctors Community Hospital in Lanham, Maryland, a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery, a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
