The Johns Hopkins Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, located in Baltimore, Maryland, offers medical students and residents the opportunity to continue their medical training in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Johns Hopkins has a rich history related to plastic and reconstructive surgery in America. John Staige Davis, a Johns Hopkins School of Medicine graduate and long time faculty member, was the first physician in the United States to dedicate his entire career to plastic surgery. In some ways, plastic surgery was formed around activities that happened at Johns Hopkins, though there were many contributions from other doctors and institutions that have led to today's advancements. Many who were trained here have become leaders in plastic surgery programs across the country — and we continue the tradition of excellence today.
The department offers multiple specialized fellowship programs:
- Burn surgery fellowship
- Complex gender surgery and microsurgery fellowship
- Craniofacial surgery fellowship
- Hand and upper extremity fellowship
- Neuroplastic and Reconstructive Surgery
- Reconstructive microsurgery fellowship
