JIYOUNG RYU, MD

Dr. Jiyoung Ryu is a double board-certified physician with over fifteen years of experience.

She completed her residency at Montefiore Medical Center in New York, followed by fellowship training in pain management. She is also board-certified by the American Board of Obesity Medicine.


Dr. Ryu subsequently underwent extensive training in facial and body aesthetics in her native South Korea. She has medical licenses to practice in both countries, returning to Korea regularly to adopt the latest advances in aesthetics.

 

Dr. Ryu’s passion for aesthetics and weight loss started shortly after she graduated medical school. She had the opportunity to work at 365MC, which is the premier weight loss clinic in Seoul, Korea. During this time, she realized that patient counseling was a critical element to successful outcomes. She also found tremendous satisfaction in helping patients achieve their goal weight.


Dr. Ryu continued her training in facial and body aesthetics at the ME Clinic in the Gangnam District of Seoul, which is a globally recognized aesthetic market. She travels to Korea every year to learn and adopt the latest advances in skin care and aesthetics.

Dr. Ryu grew up in New York, Los Angeles, and Seoul and has lived in the Triangle for almost ten years. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her two young children and her husband,

who is a surgeon at Duke. She is fluent in English, Korean, and Japanese. Ironically, she is also a food blogger on Instagram.
