Early Life & Undergraduate Education
A native Texan through and through, Dr. Kendall Roehl was born in South Texas. Her family settled in Victoria, where she spent her formative years. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Sam Houston State University, with a double major in Biology and Chemistry.
Dr. Roehl completed medical school at the University of Texas Branch at Galveston where she graduated at the top of her class. It was during this time that Dr. Roehl discovered the diversity and depth of plastic surgery.
Dr. Roehl extended her stay at Galveston to complete a comprehensive residency in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. This continued at MD Anderson, where she discovered her life’s calling to restore the bodies of breast cancer survivors.
Upon completing her residency, Dr. Roehl began a fellowship in reconstructive microsurgery at the MD Anderson Cancer Center. This enabled her to master free tissue transfer techniques and flap-based reconstruction on the breast and body.
After her fellowship, Dr. Roehl spent four years in academic medicine at both UTMB and Texas A&M Scott & White as an assistant professor. There, she cared for complex reconstructive issues and trained plastic surgery residents and medical students.
Upon returning to Houston in 2014, Dr. Roehl dedicated herself to serve her community. She worked in private practice before joining the Memorial Plastic Surgery team, where she divides her time assisting its Memorial City office and leading its Clear Lake office. It is her privilege to make her patients feel complete again in a safe and intimate environment.
Currently, Dr. Roehl serves as an executive board member at The Rose, a Houston-based organization that provides low-income women access to breast cancer treatment. In addition to the American Society of Plastic Surgery (ASPS), the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS), and the American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery (ASRM), Dr. Roehl is an active member of the Texas Society of Plastic Surgery (TSPS), Texas Medical Association (TMA), American Medical Association (AMA) and other medical societies.
Dr. Roehl’s work as an academic surgeon allowed her to train medical students and residents. She has shared her knowledge in a number of presentations and lectures across the country to a crowd of international peers. She has written many peer-reviewed articles and book chapters.
Away from the office, Dr. Roehl enjoys cooking and wine and keeps herself fit through running and cross-fitting. She is a devoted mother to her two children, Kannon Reid and Knox Adda; and a supportive wife to her husband, David Mills.
