“Oasis MD is a lifestyle healthcare service organization that brings patients highly innovative products and services to promote overall wellness, beauty, and performance,” explained Dr. James Chao, MD FACS. Dr. Chao is the founder of Oasis MD, a board certified plastic surgeon and a clinical professor of plastic surgery at the University of California, San Diego. According to their website, he is often seen on the sidelines attending to injuries for the San Diego Chargers and the ESPN X Games as the plastic and hand surgeon. He specializes in aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery, cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the hand, and upper extremity and body contour surgery.

Oasis MD not only offers cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery, but has an extensive menu of services in the areas of health, aesthetics, and ability. “We not only provide the latest and most effective treatments such as laser hair removal and Botox, but stem cell and hormone replacement therapy, joint/cartilage replacement, and physical therapy,” stated Dr. Chao. Oasis MD also works with physicians in other fields such as sports medicine and chiropractic medicine, allowing for patients to achieve their overall healthcare goals. Their new Lifestyle Healthcare Center affords patients same day or next day access to all of their top specialists.
Personalized service is the cornerstone of the practice, and according to Dr. Chao, the entire staff, which includes licensed estheticians, nurses and therapists, ensures each patient is comfortable by creating a relaxing and warm environment. “Each member of our team takes the time to understand patient’s individual needs. We also focus on results – we design a personalized treatment program to help maximize beauty and wellness,” related Dr. Chao. Oasis MD provides patients with the newest, most innovative procedures thanks to Dr. Chao’s dedication to research and the development of new technologies in the field of plastic surgery and lifestyle healthcare.

In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Chao also uses his expertise to make a difference in the lives of children. “I was honored to recently receive the Health Heroes Award given by the San Diego Combined Health Agencies,” said Dr. Chao. This award recognized his volunteer efforts in performing surgeries on underprivileged children across the globe through the Fresh Start Surgical Gift Program.
