When you express interest in a specific study, the information from your profile will be sent to the doctor conducting that study. If you're eligible to participate, you may be contacted by a nurse or study coordinator.
If you select a health category rather than a specific study, doctors who have active studies in that area may contact you to ask if you would like to participate.
In both cases, you will be contacted by the preferred method (email or phone) that you specified in your profile.
A Welcome Message From Dr. Persing, Section Chief Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
Welcome to Yale Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery website.
Our Yale Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Programs and Centers are world-renowned for their excellence. Our surgeons and clinical specialists are leaders in advancing medical care through research and unparalleled diagnostic and treatment strategies. They are recognized time and again with local, national, and international awards and honors.
But what drives each and every one of us is the care we extend to helping our patients during their time spent with us. Our success is measured by helping someone regain a sense of empowerment after cancer treatment by enhancing the quality of life for a child with a birth defect, by helping someone use their hands again, by treating sleep apnea and breathing issues, by improving the symmetry and function of jaw imbalances, or by helping to improve overall self-esteem and body image. The personalized and compassionate care we give has and always will come from our hearts.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and for your interest in Yale Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
John A. Persing, MD
Section Chief, Yale School of Medicine Department of Surgery - Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
