Adetayo, MD, FAAP, FACS, is a board-certified plastic surgeon who manages the full spectrum of pediatric and adult plastic surgery, with additional expertise in pediatric plastic and craniofacial surgery.

Dr. Adetayo was born in Nigeria, West Africa. She came to the United States as a teenager to pursue her dream of medicine.

Dr. Adetayo is also the first black, immigrant woman to have built a cleft and craniofacial program in the United States from the ground up.

Her journey has been dedicated to caring for patients and their families; surgical reconstruction and innovation, mentoring students, residents, and faculty; advocating for legislation at the local and national level; research and education; and community engagement and leadership. She shares her strategies for success on many panels.
