As a Sono Bello surgeon, Dr. Okpaku has displayed a passion for his patients’ education and wellbeing by providing them with useful, actionable advice for what to do pre and post-operation to ensure the best possible outcomes. For example, he advises his patients to go for long walks every day in the weeks leading up to and following their surgery to facilitate healthy blood flow. He has also suggested that patients shower with antibacterial soap rather than body wash before their procedure as an extra defense against infections. These sorts of tips exemplify his commitment to patient education and safety.
After earning his MD from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, PA, Dr. Okpaku completed a General Surgery Residency at the University of Miami and a Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Residency at the University of Texas. He worked in South Florida for a number of years, mainly in Miami and Fort Lauderdale, and has recently relocated to Austin, Texas where he is currently based.
Outside of the operating room, Dr. Okpaku leads an active lifestyle. His background as a Marine and an athlete has made him disciplined and energetic about his physical fitness. He still practices martial arts and tries to work out most days.
