Dr. Gedge Rosson specializes in microvascular perforator flap breast reconstructions, such as the DIEP (deep inferior epigastric artery perforator flap), the SIEA (superficial inferior epigastric artery flap), and the SGAP (superior gluteal artery perforator flap). He was the first surgeon in the United States to widely implement pre-operative mapping of the abdominal perforators using 64-slice multi-detector 3D CT scan angiograms, and he is one of the first to now regularly connect nerves to create sensate breast reconstructions.

Dr. Rosson currently has hospital privileges at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, the R Adams Cowley Shock-Trauma Center, and Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. His research has been published in major peer-reviewed scientific journals and presented at both national and international meetings.
