At the completion of his residency in New Jersey, Dr. Nawada accepted a teaching position at the same institution as a Clinical Assistant Professor of Surgery for two Years.

After the professorship in Plastic Surgery, Dr. Nawada started his solo practice in Plastic Surgery and moved with his young family to suburban Chicago to live and practice in Hinsdale, IL.  However, a thirty-three degrees-below-zero winter influenced Dr. Nawada, who was born and raised in southern India, to move his practice to Florida.

Dr. Nawada has been practicing Plastic Surgery in Winter Haven, Florida since 1978.  He and his wife, Christina, have four children.  He is affiliated with Winter Haven Hospital, where he has served for over twenty years and continues to have full privileges.

In 1991, Dr. Nawada was named Physician of the Year; voted by the nurses and other staff members in the Patient Care Services Division at Winter Haven Hospital as the physician whom they felt "exemplified exceptional ability in his care to patients and in his interaction with hospital staff."*

Dr. Nawada views Cosmetic Surgery as an Art, as well as a Science.  He continually meets with fellow colleagues in order to fine-tune his skills through continuing education courses in his specialty. He is committed to safety, quality and caring, where privacy and confidentiality are the standard.  His patients are provided with qualified, licensed staff, as well as Board Certified Anesthesiologists.
