Meet Dr. Ho
Dr. Adelyn Ho has grown up with a passion for beauty, detail and creativity. She found a wonderful link to these elements in Plastic Surgery, and feels fortunate to be providing care to her patients in both Los Angeles, California, and Vancouver, British Columbia. Dr. Ho was born and raised in Chilliwack, British Columbia and has a great love for family. Dr. Ho completed her undergraduate degree in Biology with Honours at the University of Alberta, before returning to Vancouver to enter medical school at the University of British Columbia. During her medical school training, she developed a love for plastic surgery and a special interest in breast reconstruction. After medical school, Dr. Ho feels honoured to have been selected as the first plastic surgery resident accepted into the Clinical Investigator Program in conjunction with her plastic surgery residency training at UBC. During her residency, she also feels fortunate to have been accepted as a graduate student at Harvard University, and obtained her Masters of Public Health, before going on to successfully obtain her Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, in Plastic Surgery. During her residency, she was able to further dedicate time and passion to the advancement of breast reconstruction research. She is grateful to the granting agencies, including the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, where she has been successful in obtaining several national grants to help support her collaborative research. Following her plastic surgery training, Dr. Ho was selected as the Microsurgery Fellow at the University of Southern California, and was the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgery Microsurgery Scholarship Award Winner in 2015. During her time in Los Angeles, she was able to further develop skills in Breast Reconstruction, Microsurgery and Cosmetic Surgery, and she is excited to bring these to her practice in Vancouver, British Columbia.
