We provide a full range of reconstructive plastic surgery services for infants, children and teens. Our treatment goals are aimed at increasing the movement and function of parts affected by injury, disease, genetic syndromes, birth defects or abnormal development, and improving a child’s outside appearance to help him feel better about themselves. And we do it with a compassionate, family-centered approach.

If your child needs surgery to fix a deformity caused by a birth defect, injury, illness or tumor, we have the experience and qualifications to treat your child to restore function and achieve the best possible cosmetic result.

The types of conditions we treat include:

  • Cleft lip and palate and craniosynostosis
  • Hemangiomas and other vascular malformations
  • Birth defects of the ear
  • Birth defects of the hands
  • Birth defects of the chest and limbs
  • Birthmarks and moles
  • Injuries to the head, face, neck, jaws, hands, arms, legs and trunk
  • Scar reduction and repair, including burn scars
  • Cosmetic surgery to improve a child's self-image
