Dr. Jeffrey Roth could only be described as one of a dedicated breed of doctors, those that truly see medicine as a mission. Born in Los Angeles, CA, at age 11 his family moved to what was then a small country town, which we know now as our great city of Las Vegas. He undoubtedly considers Las Vegas his hometown, and avowed his commitment to serve his hometown and to make an impact. As one of our 2020 Top 100 Doctors of the Year, we certainly believe he is meeting that goal with passion and care.
After heading back east to Boston for his college studies at Brandeis University, Dr. Roth made his way back to Las Vegas and was drawn to medicine, as it fit profoundly with his mission to help people. He graduated from the University of Nevada School of Medicine. He then went out east again to Philadelphia to the Medical College of Pennsylvania/Hahnemann University and completed a General Surgery Residency. He realized that Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery was where he wanted to be. A beautiful marriage of art and medicine, as Dr. Roth describes. He went on to train at UCSF in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, and finished up at USC/LA County with a fellowship in hand and microsurgery, marking his 18-year schooling and study complete, for now.
A lover of education for himself and others, Dr. Roth truly enjoys sharing the wealth of knowledge with students and peers. He has taught classes in a variety of courses, including the “Stop the Bleed” course which teaches the community how to use a tourniquet. More so, he cowrote The Essential Burn Unit Handbook with a colleague that is still used today in burn units across the country.
Dr. Roth opened Las Vegas Plastic Surgery in 2003 and has found success within the community of Las Vegas. Beginning as a reconstructive and aesthetic practice, throughout the years it has evolved into an incredible surgical and non-surgical aesthetic practice filled with innovative techniques and the newest technologies to offer. Within our ever-changing landscape of a city, the world of plastic surgery is ever changing and evolving as well, and Dr. Roth genuinely enjoys continuing his education as the information becomes available.
Another great impact he has made in Las Vegas is his work with Top Rank Boxing. After attending a bout, he was asked to suture a fighter’s cuts. Always ready and willing to help where he can, he jumped in and sewed up the boxer’s face. The fighter then made it to the press conference. Since that time, he has been called upon to repair the wounds of many fighters. Champion boxers he has worked on include Manny Pacquiao, Zab Judah, Antonio Margarito, and Deontay Wilder.
Dr. Roth is one of the most committed doctors MYVEGAS has had the chance to meet and get to call one of our Top 100 Doctors. Committed to his mission of helping people in the community, and giving back while he is at it, Dr. Roth is as determined as they come. Not to mention, has changed the outlook and journey of many of his patients lives. Dr. Roth says, “It has been an interesting ride so far [for sure], but we’re just getting started!”
