Background

Scott P. Bartlett is well known for his work in facial plastic surgery in children and adults, treating them for both reconstructive and cosmetic concerns. In his reconstructive work, Dr. Bartlett treats patients with facial trauma, facial palsy, congenital abnormalities and defects of the face following skin cancer surgery. In the area of cosmetic surgery, he has special interests in the face and neck, concentrating on nasal, eyelid and facial rejuvenation procedures. His research is directed to learning the effects of growth and development, as well as aging, on the structure of the face and refining methods of facial reconstruction. His other interests include development of novel implants and medical devices. By combining his expertise in infant and adult reconstruction with aesthetic procedures, he is able to marry form and function in restoration.

Dr. Bartlett is a member of the Edwin and Fannie Gray Hall Center for Human Appearance, a team of specialists dedicated to improving ways of treating appearance related problems. He is also the holder of the Peter Randall Endowed Chair in Pediatric Plastic Surgery and the Mary Downs Endowed Chair in Pediatric Craniofacial Treatment and Research at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. His research is directed to learning the effects of aging on the structure of the face and refining methods of facial reconstruction. His other research interests include growth and development of the face and implant materials. He is widely published in specialty journals and books.

Dr. Bartlett lectures worldwide and is a member of prestigious plastic surgery societies such as the American Association of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the International Society of Craniomaxillofacial Surgery, of which he is a former President. He is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and the American Academy of Pediatrics.  He is the Section Editor in Pediatric/Craniofacial for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the most widely read journal in the specialty. Each year he travels to Poland in a volunteer capacity where he performs surgery and trains Polish physicians in methods of facial reconstruction for children and adults.

Dr. Bartlett is an attending surgeon in the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Director of the Craniofacial Program at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. He is a Professor of Plastic Surgery at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. He completed his pre-medical studies at Weber State College in Utah and his medical studies at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri. He interned and did his surgical and plastic surgery residencies at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. At Harvard University, he was a research fellow in surgical immunology and later a craniomaxillofacial and pediatric sallow at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. He is board certified in Plastic Surgery.

Dr. Bartlett has had a career long interest in ear reconstruction. For over 30 years he has been using autologous cartilage to fabricate new ears for children born with microtia or absence of the ear. He has recently adopted a new methodology pioneered buy a colleague in California in which a flap of tissue from the undersurface of the scalp is draped over a porous polyethylene framework on which skin grafts are applied. This single stage procedure reduces donor site morbidity and enhances surgical result. He is one of few practitioners who are performing this type of reconstruction on the East coast. He has been aware of the possibility of early shaping of the deformed neonatal ear for years, and employed various methods for this reshaping.
