Welcome to Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

UF's Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery faculty offers comprehensive care in the reconstruction of congenital and acquired defects, and in cosmetic surgery.

UF plastic surgeons also have expertise in microsurgery, surgery of the hand and the care of chronic wounds. The surgeons care for adult and pediatric patients from a wide geographic area.

The division was established in 1963. Since its inception, faculty and staff of the division have sought to fulfill the three components of the mission of the University of Florida College of Medicine: patient care of the highest order, education of students at many levels and research to advance the state of knowledge in plastic surgery.

The division conducts a post-graduate residency program for surgeons who wish to become plastic surgeons. Past graduates of this program serve in both university and community practices. Members of the division pursue basic laboratory research and clinical research.
