About Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

If your child suffers from a condition or injury that requires surgical treatment, our pediatric plastic surgery team can take your family from heartache to hope.

Your child can access the most advanced treatment for unique conditions. For example, we specialize in correcting craniosynostosis, a condition causing an infant's skull to close too early, constricting normal brain and skull growth. Our craniofacial imaging research center is one of only a few of its kind in the world. It includes the most sophisticated software available in image analysis.
