Overview

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 himself. And we do it with a compassionate, family-centered approach.

We have one focus: kids.

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 craniostenosis
  • Hemangiomas and other vascular malformations
  • Birth defects of the ear (protruding or absent ear)
  • Birth defects of the hands (webbed fingers, extra or missing digits)
  • Birth defects of the chest and limbs (breast anomalies)
  • 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 (e.g., nose reshaping, eyelid surgery, ear and chin repositioning, and correction of jaw or bite abnormalities)
