Sami A. Nizam, II, MD, DMD
Meet Dr. Nizam
Dr. Sami A Nizam, II was born in Daytona Beach, FL and attended the University of Florida in Gainesville for his undergraduate training. Following graduation, he stayed in his home state and attended Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale graduating 4th in his class. Upon graduation he earned the Horace Wells senior award for anesthesia, as well as the American College of Dentist Ethics Award. After earning his DMD degree, he completed a 1 year internship at LSU in New Orleans, where he was introduced to modern concepts of post traumatic facial reconstruction. Dr. Nizam then matriculated into the 6 year integrated Oral and Maxillofacial Residency (OMFS) program at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey. He selected this institution to train at as it seamlessly blended the medical and dental world with his time split evenly between the hospital and dental school. During this time he completed medical school at Rutgers earning his MD. He then completed 1 year of General Surgery at University Hospital, in Newark, NJ. Dr. Nizam then entered into an AACS accredited cosmetic surgery fellowship under the tutelage of Dr. Rhys Branman at The Cosmetic Surgery Center in Little Rock, Arkansas. During his fellowship he completed over 650 cosmetic surgery cases. Dr. Nizam has simultaneously been in private practice since 2013.
Dr. Nizam has devoted his professional career to all aspects of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Facial Cosmetic Surgery. This is exemplified by the breadth of topics he has contributed to the scientific literature including; oral medicine, anesthesia, trigeminal nerve repair, arthrocentesis of the temporomandibular joint, computer aided reconstruction of facial trauma, dental implant site preparation, genioplasty, lower blepharoplasty, and facelifting. He has published on these subjects in peer reviewed journals, multi volume textbooks, as well as being invited to lecture to live audiences.
To keep abreast of the latest developments in these areas, he has always exceeded the continuing education requirements and continues to be involved in numerous outside educational opportunities and organizations. Dr. Nizam’s philosophy has always been to stay up to date and learn from others to avoid becoming stagnant in the way he practices.
In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family, exercising, and various outdoor activities. To give back he has volunteered his surgical skills on multiple foreign mission trips to Bangladesh and Mexico to provide care to the less fortunate.
As a dual degree fellowship trained surgeon, Dr. Nizam is able to provide the highest level of care available. However, he feels that patient care is more than surgical technique and training and more about personal relationships. From consultation to post op care he is willing to go the extra mile to make you feel like you are part of his family at Alabama Surgical Arts.
