While growing up in the Northwest Hills neighborhood of Austin, Walden participated in sports. Soccer was her main sport, and she was well-accomplished during this time. She could have easily pursued a career in soccer, but her heart was set on becoming a plastic surgeon. Of course, she made the right choice, and this profession has created a fulfilling life. Dr. Walden’s excellence in this field has opened other doors such as being a consultant for numerous medical-aesthetic companies, including Venus Concept, SmartGraft and Ideal Impact. In addition to that, Dr. Walden is now a spokeswoman for the prominent Natrelle Pre-Consultation Kit.
Female empowerment is at an all-time high as many females have worked their way up the food chain, especially when it comes to employment. In the medical field, Jennifer Walden has garnered plenty of attention because she has brought so much to the field of cosmetic surgery. Jennifer Walden is one of the most successful doctors in the state of Texas. She has worked with some of the industry’s best, and she has worked at some of the most prestigious institutes in the US. “I know that I’m a rarity because there are many female surgeons in the particular industry,” said Walden. Cosmetic surgery is definitely a male-dominated field, and Walden only represents a small percentage of female surgeons.
Dr. Walden’s success was no fluke. This woman has studied and trained for the vast majority of her adult life. All of this hard work has certainly paid off over the past few years. Dr. Walden has appeared on a variety of television shows such as “Plastic Surgery Obsession,” “Dr. 90210,” “The Today Show” and “The Best & Worst Celebrity Plastic Surgery Stories.” In addition to that, she has provided medical commentary for Fox News and for ABC News.

“I have to prove myself year in and year out, but I’m fine with that,” said Walden. She has been practicing in this field for under 20 years, but she has accomplished more than the average plastic surgeon. Walden has played a critical role in bringing back silicone-breast implants, and she was one of the first surgeons to use laser machines. All in all, Dr. Jennifer Walden has many more accreditations, but that’s a story for another day.
In the field of robotic surgery, Dr. David Samadi is one of the top names in the world. His achievements are respected by his peers around the globe while his patients see him as life-saving. His expertise is in prostate surgery for patients who have been diagnosed with cancer and people travel from all around the country in order to be under his care during the extremely stressful time. Dr. David Samadi completed his education in robotic radical prostatectomy at one of the first hospitals in the world to regularly perform the procedure successfully, the Henri Mondor Hospital in France. While at Henri Mondor, he had a fantastic mentorship under Professor Claude Abbou, who Dr. David Samadi accredits much of his success in the surgery to.
Prior to his fellowship at Henri Mondor, Dr. David Samadi earned his medical degree in 1994 in New York through S.U.N.Y’s medical school.

While here, his talent and hard-work were so impressive that he became the highest paid surgeon in the New York area, and rightfully so. Dr. David Samadi has performed thousands of surgeries, almost 8,000, in over 45 countries throughout his illustrious career.
At Lenox Hill, he has many of the same members of his surgical staff as he did at Mount Sinai. When he joined the faculty at Lenox Hill, he asked his staff from Mount Sinai to join him. Many of them have now worked with him for almost 20 years.
