Warren Ellsworth, MD

Warren Ellsworth, MD is a board-certified plastic surgeon performing cutting-edge techniques in breast reconstruction, microsurgery and cosmetic surgery in the Houston and Katy, Texas, areas. He provides patients with care at his surgical practice, Ellsworth Plastic Surgery, along with serving as medical director of plastic & reconstructive surgery at Houston Methodist West Hospital.

Dr. Ellsworth combines a compassionate approach with extensive experience in a variety of innovative techniques. He is one of the select surgeons now offering Resensation℠ to women considering autologous breast reconstruction after a mastectomy. The surgical technique uses nerve repair technology to give women the possibility of returned sensation to their newly restored breasts.

If we can give a patient the sensation that they feel when they hug their child or their spouse, that is a very big deal. And if we can give patients more sensation with the possibility of growth over time, many years to come, that is just the next level in breast reconstruction.

I am blessed to help many amazing patients, and my goal is to continue innovating so that we can give them the best and most comprehensive reconstruction options possible.
