In his role as a clinician, researcher and educator, A. Lee Dellon has been a pioneer in the field of peripheral nerve surgery.
The A. Lee Dellon, M.D., Ph.D., Lectureship in Peripheral Nerve Surgery recognizes his lifelong commitment to the profession and is an important component of resident education in our Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. This is particularly fitting, as Dellon is a Johns Hopkins University and school of medicine alumnus. He has been affiliated with the department since 1978.
The Dellon Endowed Lectureship is made possible by the generous support of donors to the A. Lee Dellon, M.D., Ph.D., Leadership Fund in Peripheral Nerve Surgery.
