Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. It can be divided into two main categories – reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery. A plastic surgeon’s primary responsibility is performing surgical and non-surgical procedures, and they use a variety of reparative and reconstructive techniques to get the job done.
Outside of work, Dr. Turner spends as much time as possible with his family and his grandchildren. He enjoys gardening, music, hunting, golf and serving at his church. He has spent many years volunteering his time to the Christian Children’s Fund and Austin Smile Medical Mission, where he has traveled abroad to Kenya, Mexico, Ecuador and El Salvador to perform cleft lip and palate procedures on under-privileged children.
