Dr. Jackson, a board certified plastic surgeon, has practiced in Napa since 1994. She completed her general and plastic surgery training at the Stanford University Medical Center, the country’s premiere and most competitive plastic surgery training program. Her medical school training was at the Medical College of Ohio after receiving a master’s degree from Baylor University in Texas. During her medical school years she was inducted into Alpha Omega Alpha, the national medical honor society for medical excellence. She also completed international fellowships in plastic and reconstructive surgery at Canniesburn Hospital in the United Kingdom, at Showa University in Tokyo in Japan, and at the Second People’s Hospital in China. After completing her training at Stanford she underwent a fellowship in microsurgical transplant surgery at the Buncke Clinic in San Francisco. The surgeons of the Buncke clinic were at the forefront of developing microsurgery in this country. Upon completion of the fellowship she accepted a position at the clinic as clinical professor, training residents from the Stanford University Medical Center, the University of California Medical Center in San Francisco, and St. Francis Hospital in plastic surgical techniques and microvascular transplantation. After three years of extensive operating and teaching in San Francisco, she was asked by Dr. William McClure to join Napa Valley Plastic Surgery. Dr. Jackson is credentialed in all aspects of plastic surgery. She has a special expertise in cosmetic surgery and has been a Bay Area innovator in new techniques. She was one of the country’s first plastic surgeons to use the Da Vinci operating robot. She was one of the first Bay Area plastic surgeons to perform endoscopic plastic surgery. One reason Dr. Jackson chose to join Napa Valley Plastic Surgery was because she shared Dr. McClure’s philosophy of offering care to those in need both at home and abroad. She believes in “giving back” and serves on many volunteer medical organizations including ReSurge, Rotaplast, Faces of Hope, and the Reconstructive Surgery Foundation. For over twenty years she has organized and led volunteer surgical missions to developing countries, typically going on two trips a year. Since 1985 she has worked yearly in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia teaching plastic surgery and training surgical residents. She has been honored by the Mongolian government for bringing modern plastic surgery to their country. In addition to the overseas work, Dr. Jackson devotes time to those in need in our own community. Working with Napa’s Queen of the Valley Medical Center and Clinic Ole ́she cares for patients who lack the ability to pay for service. She was a co-founder with Dr. McClure of Taboo Tattoo, a community program established to remove gang related tattoos from young people who wish to leave the gang life behind. In 2001 Dr. Jackson and Dr. McClure were recognized as “Health Professionals of the Year” by the Napa Chamber of Commerce and the Napa County Medical Society. In 2012 She and Dr. McClure received a special award from the Queen of the Valley Medical Center Foundation, the Sister Ann McGuinn Award for Justice. In their words, “The award recognizes people in our community who help the poor and disenfranchised realize a better quality of life, and work with others to ensure that Napa County has a safety net in place for its residents.” Please see Dr. Jackson’s curriculum vitae for more detailed information.
