Dr. Catherine Weng is a board certified Otolaryngologist and graduate of the American Academy of Facial and Plastic Reconstruction fellowship program. Dr. Weng and her husband moved to Colorado in 2016 with their cat Crookshanks and puppy Ruthie. In her free time Dr. Weng enjoys running, snowboarding, cooking, and traveling. In addition to traveling for leisure, Dr. Weng maintains an interest in participating in medical missions. During her fellowship training she traveled to Guatemala, Vietnam and Ecuador with HUGS (Help Us Give Smiles) Foundation, performing reconstructive surgery for children born with microtia (underdeveloped ears) and cleft lip and palate. She found these missions to be a life changing experience and plans to continue her collaboration and support of them here in Colorado.
Dr. Weng earned bachelor’s degrees in Architecture and Design as well as Biology from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, MA. She then earned her medical degree from Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio. Following graduation, Dr. Weng completed her otolaryngology head and neck surgery residency training in Cleveland at University Hospitals Case Medical Center. She was drawn to this specialty due to the complex three dimensional problem solving involved in ENT surgery, which she felt particularly suitable for due to her interest and background in art and architecture. After residency training, Dr. Weng completed additional fellowship training in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery with Dr. Vito Quatela in Rochester, NY. During her fellowship, Dr. Weng found satisfaction in reconstructive and cosmetic surgical procedures which challenged and inspired her aesthetic and three dimensional problem solving skills.
Board Certified in Otolaryngology as well as Fellowship trained in Facial Plastics and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Weng is a needed addition to the Denver-Boulder and Rocky Mountain community.
