Expertise in Microsurgical Reconstruction
Our highly trained reconstructive surgeons are leaders in microsurgical reconstruction, a sophisticated surgical technique that can improve both functional and aesthetic outcomes.
Microsurgical procedures enable our experts to use your own tissue to reshape or reform your body, leading to more natural looking and functioning results. This technique requires immense skill and specialized training. It involves re-establishing arteries and veins to ensure the transplanted tissue remains healthy, as well as even repairing damaged nerves to restore sensation and movement in some cases.
Our experts leverage microsurgical techniques during reconstruction of the breast, mouth, jaw, neck, scalp, face and pelvis.
