Yale Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

At Yale Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, our world-class surgeons and clinical specialists are dedicated to improving the lives of adults and children affected by congenital defects, traumatic injuries, cancer treatments, and degenerative diseases. We strive to bring our patients the most effective, safest and current surgical techniques paired with individualized, compassionate care.

Our programs, centers, and specialties include:

As faculty of the Yale University School of Medicine Department of Surgery, our surgeons are internationally recognized for excellence in the most complex and delicate of operations, such as the reconstruction of a child’s face and head, the reconstruction of a hand after an injury, the realignment of facial features, and the aesthetic enhancement of the face and body. 

We believe that everyone deserves a chance at a better life. Our surgeons at Yale Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery bring their passion and renowned medical treatment across borders and economic boundaries by traveling to developing countries, worldwide. We have been able to help those suffering from congenital, traumatic, and cancer-induced deformities by offering free reconstructive surgical care for those who cannot afford treatment.

Our surgeons see patients at Yale Physician's Building and the Pediatric Specialty Center. Please call 203.785.2571 to schedule an appointment.
