Joseph A. Franklin, MD, FACS


My career began at a busy Level 1 Trauma Center with diverse clinical responsibilities. I served as the Medical Director of the Craniofacial Clinic at Vidant Medical Center, taught medical students and other healthcare professionals as an adjunct clinical professor in the Brody School of Medicine at ECU, and cared for an array of patients – both in the academic arena and within my own private office setting. Ultimately, after eight years, I decided to relocate my practice to the Raleigh-Durham-Cary, NC area to be closer to family members and friends. Today, I feel very fortunate to call Raleigh home.

After spending many years living in the south, I know that hospitality is one of the area’s greatest attributes and, as a result, has become one of the cornerstones to my approach as a surgeon. I understand the importance of competent and compassionate medical care delivered in a reassuring and inviting atmosphere, which I extend to every patient. Our unique clinical setting allows for the perfect intersection of these ideals.

We are conveniently located at Preston Walk in Cary, NC. I treat patients in-office or at one of the hospital affiliations – with full surgical privileges – including Duke Raleigh, UNC Rex Healthcare in Raleigh, Rex Surgery Center in Cary, and Blue Ridge Surgery Center in Raleigh. We are here to provide for all of your plastic surgery needs, and welcome the opportunity to take excellent care of you.
