Here is just a small nugget of Dr. Theo Nyame’s backstory and what has brought him to greater Charlotte.


Theo was an original native of Ghana, West Africa before he and his parents migrated to the Bronx in New York City. However, while he spent only his first eight years in Africa, it left a memory forever imprinted on his brain. Throughout the area he grew up in, many children suffered from conditions that would be addressed with reconstructive surgery in a more developed nation. This memory helped push Theo Nyame into pursuing not only a medical degree but also a specialization in plastic surgery.

Theo began his college education at Cornell University, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. He eventually went on to attend Harvard Medical School for his medical schooling. He remained at Harvard for his general surgery education. With his displayed skill and knowledge, Harvard kept him on board, allowing him to serve his plastic surgery residency within the Harvard Plastic Surgery Program. During this time, he also took part in the Harvard Medical School Pfeiffer Fellow, a research fellowship.

After completing his time in the New England area, he left the United States to perform his aesthetic surgery fellowship at Gold Coast University Hospital in Queensland, Australia.

Once he finished his fellowship in Australia, he returned to the United States to work as a board-certified plastic surgeon and tummy tuck specialist.

Professional Career

Since graduating, Dr. Theo Nyame has been certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Harvard University also recognized Theo for his efforts, training, and skill by honoring him with not only the Harvard Medical School surgical teaching award but the Harvard Medical School Holli L. Albright, ’31 Scholar award and the Harvard Medical School Linnane Scholar, which is given out to those individuals within the medical school that demonstrate academic excellence as well as community leadership.

And just in case you weren’t sure of just how smart Dr. Theo Nyame is, the Omega Psi Phi fraternity presented him with the National Scholar award, which is given to a member with the highest national grade point average.

He has taken his reconstructive surgery talents to many corners of the globe. While in Queensland, he did serve in the Adjunct Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Facility: Pacific Private Hospital Breast Academy Center. Then, in Europe, he was a clinical adviser to skin and trauma research at the Medizinische Universitat Wein in Vienna, Austria.
