About The Practice

Dr. Wade Brock is a board certified ophthalmologist and facial cosmetic surgeon specializing in facial cosmetic surgery and oculofacial plastic reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Wade Brock has practiced in Little Rock, Arkansas since 2004. A native of Arkansas, he was raised in Van Buren, where he had wonderful parents, friends, teachers and employers who each, in their own way, contributed to his education and success.

Dr. Brock performed his undergraduate training at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology. He received a Doctorate in Medicine from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. He completed a one-year transitional internship with Tucson Hospitals Medical Education Program, Inc. at the Tucson Medical Center in Tucson, Arizona. His training included general surgery, trauma surgery, critical cardiac/pulmonary care and internal medicine. Following internship he completed a residency in ophthalmology with the Jones Eye Institute at UAMS, Arkansas Children’s Hospital and the Little Rock VA.

During residency, Dr. Brock was offered interviews at a number of prestigious programs for fellowship training in oculofacial plastic surgery sponsored by the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Ultimately, he chose to attend the University of Alabama at Birmingham to train under John A. Long, MD at the world-renowned Callahan Eye Foundation Hospital and UAB. Dr. Brock chose this fellowship for the large volume of surgery and the progressive training in reconstructive and cosmetic surgery offered by Dr. Long who had trained at UCLA. During that fellowship he practiced not only with Dr. Long in oculofacial plastic surgery but also with many of the best dermatologists, ENT,  oral maxillary facial surgeons and cosmetic surgeons in the country. Following fellowship, he returned to the Jones Eye Institute as a full-time surgeon and faculty member training residents in his area of specialty. In 2006, Dr. Brock formed Arkansas Oculoplastic Surgery, PLLC, a private practice dedicated solely to excellence in oculofacial plastic reconstructive and facial cosmetic surgery.

After presenting and publishing his thesis, he sat for and passed his written and oral examinations in ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery, becoming a fellow of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Dr. Brock accomplished additional board certification in 2013 when he became a Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery in Facial Cosmetic Surgery. Dr. Brock is the only oculofacial plastic surgeon in Arkansas, and only one of a few in the country, to hold both of these distinctions! He received the Robert F. Jackson, M.D. Award for achieving the highest score of all candidates in the entire country on the oral component of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery 2013 Annual Examination.

Dr. Brock maintains surgical privileges at Baptist Medical Center, St. Vincent Infirmary, Arkansas Childrens Hospital, UAMS and the VA.
