I became a surgeon for one reason to provide compassionate, personal care to every patient every time. - Tony L. Weaver, D.O., F.A.C.S.

Beyond his professional achievements Dr. Tony Weaver is particularly proud of his Native American heritage (Eastern Cherokee, Choctaw & Creek), he is the first and only Native American to become a Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon. However, the most meaningful role in his life is not that of a physician or surgeon it is the role as husband and father. His wife Jenny & four children remain the most important part of his life. Dr. Tony would like for everyone to know that, “I love people and caring for them as a surgeon is an honor and a privilege, but that doesn’t define me. I am defined by how my family sees me, by my role as a father and spouse but most importantly by my life as a Christian.” Dr. Weaver is forever indebted to his family, community, the patients, nurses, staff, teachers, attending surgeons and his fellow colleagues who have & continue to teach and inspire him.
