Meet Dr. Eric Hubli
Dr. Hubli brings over 25 years of Craniofacial, Cleft and Pediatric Plastic Surgery experience to Fort Worth, Texas and the Cook Children's Healthcare System.
A native Northeasterner, Dr. Hubli's initial educational experiences began in the Boston area. He received his undergraduate degree from Boston College where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.S. degree in Biology. As an added honor, he was inducted into three academic honor societies, Phi Beta Kappa, the Order of the Cross and Crown, and Alpha Sigma Nu. He then attended Tufts University School of Medicine where he received his Doctorate in Medicine and then furthered his education at Harvard University where he received a Masters in Healthcare Management.
Dr. Hubli received his general surgery training at Baystate Medical Center. During this portion of his career, he received accolades for his clinical teaching abilities and was given the opportunity to train at the Beth Israel Hospital, a Harvard teaching affiliate. He soon reinvigorated his Boston connections by accepting a plastic surgery training position at the internationally acclaimed Lahey Clinic. The Lahey program was unique in that it operated under a dual university affiliation. A portion of the program was affiliated with Harvard University and a portion was affiliated with Boston University. Due to this, Dr. Hubli was given the chance to hone his skills at the The Lahey Clinic, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston Children's Hospital, Boston University and Boston City Hospitals. It was during his time at Boston Children's that Dr. Hubli uncovered his medical calling, the fields of craniofacial, cleft and pediatric plastic surgery.
Pursuing his dream, Dr. Hubli moved to Texas where he secured a training position at the International Craniofacial Institute, one of the premiere craniofacial and cleft fellowships in the world. His success during his year of training led to a full time faculty position at the Institute and a partnership with the center's founder, Dr. Kenneth E. Salyer. As a surgical lead at one of the busiest craniofacial and cleft centers in the world, Dr. Hubli was able to encounter and manage an unparalleled variety of cases. The challenges encountered help him to develop a unique insight regarding the holistic management of craniofacial/cleft patients and their families.
