Achieving Excellence Through Education & Training 

After high school, Dr. Soto attended Texas A&M University, where he earned a degree in microbiology and graduated with honors in 1991. He was accepted to the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and left Texas for Baltimore to follow this opportunity of a lifetime. Based on his record and the recommendations of the plastic surgeons at Johns Hopkins, he was accepted for training in the prestigious program at Washington University & Barnes-Jewish Hospitals in St. Louis, where plastic surgery was born in the United States. 

Upon completion of his training in plastic surgery, he was accepted for an additional year of advanced fellowship training in complex breast surgery, microsurgery, and breast reconstruction with Dr. Bernard Chang at The Center for Women’s Health and Medicine of Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore. Dr. Chang had been one of Dr. Soto’s mentors at Johns Hopkins, so it was with excitement and pleasure that he returned to Baltimore for this advanced training available at only a few centers in the world. Dr. Soto’s training with Dr. Chang was shortened from one year to 9 months on the decision of the faculty that he was ready to proceed in his career. He accepted their invitation to join the faculty of The Center for Women’s Health and Medicine and spent the next 5 years training plastic surgeons and advancing the care of women in the mid-Atlantic area and surrounding states.
