He was then accepted into a residency program at the prestigious and world renowned Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota in the department of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery. During residency, he found particular interest in surgical treatment of head and neck cancer and the reconstructions necessary to restore form and function. He recognized that of all the areas of ENT/head and neck surgery, he most enjoyed the sub-specialty of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. After residency, he was asked to be part of a coveted fellowship program to further hone his skills in the area of facial plastic surgery. He completed his fellowship under the tutelage of Dr. Daniel Rousso, current President of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), in Birmingham, Alabama. The fellowship was co-sponsored by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), of which Dr. Rousso is a past-President.

Testimonial for Procedure: Facial Rejuvenation

“I want to express how grateful I am to Dr. John Bitner. I have been so pleased with the procedures I have had done by Dr. Bitner.

As Mrs. Utah America, I have had several appearances, ribbon cutting ceremonies, and opportunities to address hundreds of women as keynote speaker for Women in Business events. I am so grateful to be able to make these appearances knowing that I am putting my “best face” forward! I have had Dysport, Erbium:YAG microlaser peel, as well as other procedures that help me look younger and radiate my beauty.

Thank you Dr. Bitner for your expertise and professionalism. I love his “bedside manner” it is so warm and friendly! I also love his staff…they are friendly and reassuring! I would highly recommend Dr. Bitner to all my friends and associates.
