Episode 56: Dr. Timothy Osborn

EP 56 with Dr. Timothy Osborn from November 23, 2023

Dr. Timothy Osborn is a cranio-maxillo-facial surgeon, thankfully more commonly called a CMF surgeon. This is a surgical subspecialty that focuses specifically on the shape, proportions, and features of the face, head, and neck. Dr. Osborn trained under the European model of CMF surgery which is a fusion of plastic surgery, neurosurgery, ENT surgery, and general surgery. His 15 year professional journey included medical school, dental school, general surgery, and maxillofacial surgery training. After a very broad focus of training, he has continued to narrow the focus to now treating cosmetic and functional issues of the face, head, and neck. The most common procedures include rhinoplasty, chin surgery, and facial contouring (or changing the shape of face) for aesthetic enhancement or gender affirmation. He is also the founder of CMF Surgeons, a values-driven organization with a focus on the patient experience…and we mean it.

Dr. Osborn grew up in Rochester, Minnesota, which is the home of the Mayo Clinic and that is where the focus on the patient experience was developed. His schooling and training have now spanned the country including Minnesota, Oregon, Dallas, and ultimately ending up in the Boston area. The main practice is in Medford which houses the clinic and our ambulatory surgical suites. Throughout his training, there has been a passion for teaching that carries through today in his work training the Harvard medical students, ENT and plastic surgery fellows at Beth Israel Hospital. The CMF staff in Medford have helped Dr. Osborn build an amazing culture that allows us to be our best and thereby take the best care of our patients.

Outside of CMF, Dr. Osborn and his wife have a rapidly growing almost 5-month old son and 3 year old rescue pup who loves to walk around Lexington, which is now home. He is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu enthusiast and looks forward to rolling with his son in a few years. The distinction between Dr. Osborn’s professional and non-professional lives are very blurred because he is of the philosophy that whatever you do and whoever you are should get your best; that comes from being present, being mindful, loving what you do and the people with whom you surround yourself.
