A graduate of the University of Florida, he is Board Certified with highest of honors in facial plastic surgery. He is a member of the San Diego County Medical Society, as well as a number of other local, state and national organizations.

Committed to volunteerism and civic responsibility, Dr. Splinter has served on many local boards, task forces and select committees covering business, government, educational and service organizations. Married to Nancye Splinter, an East County activist in education and the arts, they raised and educated all their six children locally. Although happily transplanted to San Diego since 1977, Dr. Splinter was raised and educated in the South and has traveled extensively around the world on numerous medical missionary trips to such diverse places as the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Pakistan, Taiwan, Afghanistan, Mexico and Ecuador.
Since 1986, our offices and surgical facilities have been housed in a landmark historical renovation in the heart of Old Town La Mesa at the foothills of Mt. Helix. Since 1986, long before state law required plastic surgical centers to be certified, our ambulatory surgical center was both Medicare certified and state approved to the same high standards as area hospitals.
Dr. Splinter spends more than 200 hours each year in Continuing Medical Education to learn new treatments and management techniques. You are assured of professional competence, and, best of all, Dr. Splinter is a "people person" - a surgeon you can actually talk to. If you are like many people considering cosmetic surgery, you may be harboring doubts, pondering questions, or have even experienced problems with cosmetic surgery in the past. Dr. Splinter will treat you with diligence and respect. We invite you to come in for a complimentary consultation and enjoy the hospitality and charm of a bygone era in our charming state of the art facilities.
