He completed his medical degree at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. During medical school, he was awarded several research fellowships including: the Holderness Research Fellowship, Fellowship from the North Carolina Academy of Science, and a fellowship from the Southern Medical Association.
After completing medical school, he completed an internship in general surgery at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He then entered the U.S. Navy, completed the flight surgery training program, and worked as a flight surgeon in Pensacola, Florida where he was awarded the Naval Flight Surgeon of the Year.
He returned to the University of North Carolina to complete his residency in Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery and then completed a fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Washington in Seattle. Following his plastic surgery fellowship, he was an assistant professor of surgery at the University of North Carolina.
Dr. Triana has always had an interest in health and nutrition since an early age. He has competed as an amateur bodybuilder, power lifter, and biathlete. He has also developed several of his own products in the health and beauty industry.
He first became interested in hormone replacement therapy at the age of 42 when he realized he could no longer build muscle mass despite his healthy eating habits and daily work out regimen. This led him to his own personal discovery of the many and diverse benefits of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. It only made sense to add hormone balancing to his surgical practice.
In addition to a busy surgical practice, Dr. Triana has been practicing integrative medicine, hormone balancing and age management for over 12 years. In 2015, he received his board-certification in Functional and Integrative Medicine. He is currently pursuing a Masters Degree in this field.
He is a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery among others. Dr. Triana is also published as one of the top experts in the country for BHRT in Susanne Sommers' book Breakthrough.
Dr. Triana continues to maintains a workout schedule and holds a 2nd degree black belt in Tae-Kwon-Do. He currently resides in Mayfield, Kentucky with his wife and two sons.
