Research

The Division of Plastic Surgery is dedicated to providing the latest in groundbreaking and compassionate treatment.

Our physician-scientists are active in numerous research projects and clinical studies. For example, our plastic surgeons are exploring the use of stem cells in reconstructive breast surgery and are involved in the development of better imaging technologies for treatment and detection of cancer. Our plastic surgeons are also working on new telemedicine applications for the management of wounds, plastic surgery consultations and medical care to children in developing nations.
