Dr. Steinberg was born in Brooklyn, New York and moved around the country (and Canada) for different aspects of her education and medical training. Growing up in a family full of casino executives, her initial career instinct was in, you guessed it, ACTING. But at 16, she was given the amazing opportunity to shadow a plastic surgeon in Canada. She was able to witness patient interactions and surgical procedures; the plastic surgeon even taught her how to suture on his down time! It was from that point she knew that this amazing field – one where you can fix, change, and mold almost any part of the body – was the one for her.
After attending University in London and Windsor, Ontario Canada, Dr. Steinberg headed to St. George’s, Grenada where she completed two years of basic science classes. The remaining two years of medical school was spent between Brooklyn and South Florida spending time in various hospitals on clinical rotations, including plastic surgery. After graduating from SGU Magna cum Laude, she matched in Brooklyn, New York into a general surgery residency – where she spent her whatever time she could scrubbing in with the two plastic surgeons who she was privileged to work with. Upon transferring to the University of Nevada, School of Medicine – she was able to spend time rotating in plastic surgery with the late, great Dr. William Zamboni. There, she was also able to address patients of all backgrounds with varying needs in many specialities, including pediatric surgery, trauma surgery and oncologic surgery.
Dr. Steinberg’s quest for continued education took her to the largest medical center in the world – the Houston Medical Center – where she completed three more years of training in plastic surgery with some of the best plastic surgeons in the world at the esteemed Houston Methodist Hospital. She was lucky to train with leading experts in microsurgery, aesthetics, craniofacial, and hand surgery. The time she spent in the medical center solidified her love for plastic surgery, but also created a new one – a love of Texas, and Houston in particular. She decided to start her practice in Houston, at The Clinic for Plastic Surgery in August 2019.
