Dr. Devan Griner, M.D.
Devan Griner was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. He became passionate about craniofacial and pediatric plastic surgery early in life. He was introduced to the field of craniofacial surgery after watching a documentary his father (George Griner) filmed about a cleft lip/palate organization called Operation Smile. At the age of 14 he was invited to participate on a medical mission to Vietnam. There he decided that he wanted to become a craniofacial surgeon and dedicate his life to helping kids with birth defects and facial deformities.
He received his undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University and attended medical school at the University of Utah. He completed 5 years of general surgery training at New Hanover Regional Medical Center (UNC) in Wilmington North Carolina became Board Certified. He then completed his plastic surgery training at the University of Tennessee School of Medicine Chattanooga.
Finally, he completed a Craniofacial fellowship with Dr Jeffrey Fearon at Medical City in Dallas Texas where he gained his expertise in treating complex craniofacial syndromes such as Aperts, Crouzon, Pfieffer, Treacher Collins, etc. Dr Griner returned to Tennessee and practiced at the Sargent Center for pediatric and craniofacial surgery before returning to Utah to continue his practice in his home state.
