It is with great enthusiasm with which I introduce to you the Division of Plastic Surgery. Our growing team of surgeons perform a variety of reconstructive and other plastic surgery procedures on patients of all ages. Our adult plastic surgeons have extensive expertise and are fellowship trained at world class institutions. They offer advanced treatment of Breast Cancer Reconstruction specializing in DIEP flap breast reconstructions, hand and microvascular surgery, Moh’s reconstruction and treatment of peripheral nerve disorders and peripheral nerve tumors such as neurofibroma, and nerve sheath tumors.

Our pediatric plastic surgeons provide specialized care in the treatment and surgical correction of craniofacial abnormalities, cleft lip and palate, and in the management of both complex and common congenital abnormalities and vascular birthmarks at Texas Children’s Hospital.

In addition to reconstructive surgery services for the pediatric population, we provide full spectrum adult in-patient and out-patient care.

At the Center for Plastic Surgery, an ultra-modern facility fully equipped to support state-of-the-art surgical techniques and surgical care, our surgeons address the cosmetic and reconstructive surgery needs of hundreds of patients each year, including breast and microvascular reconstruction.

Our faculty members also pursue a wide variety of clinical and basic science research projects. We have pioneered new vascularized bone graft techniques for spinal fusion, crossed new frontiers in hand surgery, and have been recently voted first of all programs in the United States for research productions. Our faculty are editors of major scientific journals in Plastic Surgery and have risen to international prominence.

We offer a Plastic Surgery Integrated Residency Program, which is one of the top plastic surgery residency programs in the country and one of the oldest in the United States. This program offers a multi-institutional, integrated, six-year residency, fully accredited by the Residency Review Committee for Plastic Surgery and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.

We also offer a Pediatric Plastic Surgery Fellowship Program at Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital, which has been in existence since 2012, as well as a Pediatric Hand Surgery Fellowship Program established in 2020. The program is situated at the Texas Medical Center and the largest children’s hospital in North America.

The following pages will introduce you to our faculty members, physicians with outstanding training and expertise. I invite you to read about their specialties and research.
