Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Conditions We Treat

Our surgeons have vast experience with the full spectrum of plastic surgical problems — from the routine to the rare. We treat problems resulting from birth deformities, trauma (such as motor vehicle accidents and burns), masses, growths or tumors (including cancer, neurofibroma and fibrous dysplasia), and growth disturbances (after radiation therapy), as well as appearance-related disorders.

Our surgeons work in multidisciplinary teams throughout the institution to treat a wide variety of conditions and anomalies. Click on a topic below to expand the section and learn more about the related conditions that can be treated by plastic and reconstructive surgical procedures.
