Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Program
Breast Reconstruction Following Breast Cancer Surgery
- Many of our surgeons offer a number of reconstructive breast options, some of which can be done at the time of breast cancer surgery. Procedures include using implants or tissue from the patient’s abdomen (TRAM flap), back, buttocks or thigh; nipple reconstruction and tattooing; and the possible reshaping of the other breast to match the size of the other breast.
Craniofacial Reconstructive Surgery
- Several of our surgeons perform a wide range of highly specialized procedures to correct deformities of the face and facial skeleton. Facial deformities may be congenital, post-traumatic or result from the removal of tumors.
Hand Injury Repairs and Replantation
- Comprehensive treatment for the hand and wrist is available. Hand/finger specialists offer medical, therapeutic and surgical treatment of hand and wrist disorders, including bone, tendon, nerve, vascular and soft tissue problems, and microsurgical reconstructions.
