How your gift helps the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
The Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery has an extraordinary team of medical faculty, fellows, and residents devoted to performing life-enhancing surgeries for patients with reconstructive and aesthetic needs. Our team of plastic and reconstructive surgery experts at Johns Hopkins has the advantage of participating in one of the most specialized and thorough medical training programs and practice in the world. With a comprehensive and multi-disciplinary environment, creative, groundbreaking research and cooperative educational opportunities are limitless.
The programs of the Department range from the investigation of fundamental mechanisms at the cellular and molecular levels to clinical evaluations of operative strategies and technique.
Aesthetic and reconstructive surgery areas of expertise such as hand transplantation, burn wound healing, nerve regeneration, cleft lip and palate repair, rhinoplasty and breast reconstruction all require continuous, dedicated research in order to advance the science and improve patient care and outcomes.
Such investigations have been made possible through the generosity of our patients and donors. Charitable giving allows our physicians and scientists to maintain and accelerate the essential research that leads to new therapies and surgical techniques. Your support allows our laboratories to exist, provides the resources to staff them, and funds the programs to educate the plastic and reconstructive surgeons of tomorrow.
The incredible outcomes that our surgeons achieve testify not only to their skill and compassion, but also to the steadfast generosity of donors who understand that years of painstaking research precede the development of new procedures. Thanks to our supporters, Johns Hopkins is among just a few institutions nationwide that can advance the entire field of plastic and reconstructive surgery.
Contributions can be made in support of the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery or can be restricted to benefit the work of a specific surgeon or unrestricted to the Department. With your help, we can continue to make major strides in advancing our research and providing a better quality of life for the world.
Thank you for your partnership.
