The Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Johns Hopkins Children's Center supports children needing reconstructive surgery. We offer a broad range of advanced medical approaches and specialized surgical services for congenital conditions and injuries requiring plastic reconstructive surgery in a compassionate and caring environment.
