Randolph (Randy) C. Robinson, MD, DDS, is a cranio-maxillo-facial surgeon who is double board-certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. He maintains a private surgical practice in the southwest Denver area (Lone Tree), Robinson Cosmetic Surgery.
Dr. Robinson obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology at the University of Missouri-Columbia in 1980. Consistent with a trend for facial surgeons in the United States and Europe, he then obtained both a Dental Degree (1984) and a Medical Degree (1989) at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
Next, he completed eight years of surgical training, ultimately including two years of general surgery. In his final year of residency, he was honored by his house staff surgical peers as Resident of the Year. Lastly, he completed a one-year fellowship in craniofacial and facial plastic surgery. This fellowship was with Paul L. Tessier, MD, the world"s 'father' of craniofacial surgery who practiced at the Clinique Belvediere in Paris, France.
Dr. Robinson is the 2009 recipient of the Norm Early Victims Rights Award. It is given to recognize [those] who have made a personal and professional commitment to helping victims of crime. www.denvervictims.org
Dr. Robinson continues in academic pursuits, having published articles related to his specialty and spoken at several professional conferences, both in the US and abroad. He has done research and holds patents on bone-lengthening devices. These devices are aimed to correct deformities when facial or extremity bone length or amounts are deficient.
In 1993 Dr. Robinson traveled to San Jose, Costa Rica with Rotary International's Thousand Smiles Foundation, his first experience in providing his surgical skills for free. Since then he has led teams to Sucre, Bolivia (twice, 1993), Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (19 times, November 1994-present), and Shenyang, China (twice, March 1997 & October 2000).
As circumstances have allowed, he has also provided free facial surgeries at Denver area hospitals for needy people with deformities from Mexico, Malaysia, Bolivia, the Navajo Nation, Mongolia, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, the Philippines, Vietnam, and within the United States. But his primary pro bono efforts remain with his travels abroad with FTC teams.
