Dr. Ogu relocated to Texas with his family after obtaining his medical degree from the University of Lagos, as both a Federal Government and Shell Petroleum academic merit scholar. He received board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, after he completed a very competitive and rigorous three-year fellowship in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at one of the busiest programs in the nation – Indiana University School of Medicine, where he received advanced training in cutting-edge aesthetic and reconstructive surgery techniques. This was preceded by board certification in General Surgery after completion of a General Surgery residency at Easton Hospital – Drexel University College of Medicine in Pennsylvania, where he served as Chief Resident.
Dr. Ogu was the recipient of numerous honors throughout the course of his training including awards for the Best In-service Training Exam Score (99 percentile), Most Outstanding Resident Award (given to the best all-round resident) and Resident Teacher of the Year (chosen by medical students for excellence in teaching), to mention a few. He has presented original papers at both regional and national meetings, including at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. He is also well published in reputable medical journals, including Plastic Surgery and Modern Techniques, American Surgeon, Oxford Academic Journal and Drexel Medical Journal.
Dr. Ogu is well liked by his patients for his warm and caring personality, as well as his attention to detail. He is committed to helping patients achieve their unique desired results and become the best version of themselves, through both surgical and non-surgical techniques. He is also passionate about charity work and has had extensive volunteer experience, providing medically disadvantaged communities with free pediatric, burn and breast reconstructive surgery, on mission trips to El Salvador and Nigeria. In his free time, he enjoys mentoring the youth in the community, fitness, soccer and spending time with his beautiful family.
