Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

About Us

Pediatric reconstructive surgery provides care for children needing surgery to improve the appearance and/or function of abnormal structures of the body caused by birth defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors and disease.

Examples include cleft lip and palate reconstruction, reconstructive microsurgery, extremity salvage and reconstruction, hand surgery, reconstruction of syndromic craniofacial anomalies such as Apert, Crouzon, hemifacial microsomia and Treacher-Collins, treatment of non-syndromic craniosynostosis (premature skull fusion), plagiocephaly (abnormal head shape), ear and nasal deformities and pigmented and vascular birthmarks.
