SEES Group is pleased to welcome Dr. Jennifer Murdock, MD, Oculofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, to the medical staff of Ocean Ophthalmology in North Miami Beach, Florida.
Dr. Murdock is a board-certified ophthalmologist (ABO) and certified by the ASOPRS Oculofacial Society. She has a particular interest in aesthetic procedures around the eyes, endoscopic brow lifts, cosmetic injections of the face and under the eyes, eyelid and orbital reconstruction, pediatric ophthalmic plastic surgery, and complicated orbital inflammatory disorders, including thyroid eye disease. She recently participated in an FDA multi-center study investigating a new treatment for thyroid eye disease and a respected speaker for her expertise in the field. She has published in medical journals and textbooks and has presented at ASOPRS scientific meetings and other international meetings.
As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Murdock blends her passion for both the arts and science. This unique combination began at the University of Miami, where she achieved a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Marine Science with a minor in art history, which included a semester studying notable original pieces of artwork in Paris. She then applied her science background to clinic research, studying novel medial, laser, injectable, and surgical techniques within UM’s Department of Cosmetic Medicine. While completing her medical degree at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Dr. Murdock also participated in the Department of Community Service (DOCS), which provided free medical screening to many underprivileged communities in South Florida. She spearheaded an educational project with a professional film director and crew to create a documentary series about the culture, medical needs, and health care gaps within these diverse communities.
Dr. Murdock returned to her hometown of Houston to complete a residency in ophthalmology at Baylor College of Medicine. During residency, Dr. Murdock found her passion for advancing education by teaching medical trainees in both didactic and hands-on clinical and surgical settings. She was then selectively chosen from a highly competitive group of applicants to join the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery with fellowship training at Oregon Health and Science University. There, she performed thousands of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures of the face, eyelids, tear drainage system, and orbits in both adults and children alike.
Dr. Murdock continues her passion for the arts and is an avid supporter of South Florida’s art culture. Prior to her relocation to the Miami area, she was previously recognized as one of the Top 30 Influential Women in Houston in 2022.
