Dr. Jeffrey Swetnam’s interest in medicine began in high school. He graduated from Richmond High School in Missouri with aspirations for medical school. He attended the University of Missouri at Kansas City School of Medicine (six-year medical program), where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree and medical degree.
He then completed an internship and residency in general surgery at the Tulane School of Medicine in New Orleans.
He served as chief resident there and as the acting clinical director of Charity Hospital in New Orleans. He practiced general and peripheral vascular surgery in Missouri and Tennessee for the last 20 years.
Patient demand and an interest in cosmetic surgery began to increase and fellowship training in cosmetic surgery was imperative. In 2006 Dr. Swetnam was accepted to one of the premier cosmetic surgery programs in the country with Dr. Angelo Cuzalina and Dr. James Koehler in Tulsa, where he trained in 2007. He then joined their practice and also worked out of Face and Body Medical Aesthetics until 2011. He trained in modern vein surgery in Birmingham, Alabama with Dr. John Kingsley, adding to his current vein experience. During the time at Tulsa Surgical Arts and Face and Body, he practiced general surgery, full body cosmetic surgery and started the Oklahoma Vein Center – providing extensive modern vein therapy.
He relocated to the Fayetteville community in 2015. He is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.
