Central to our mission of providing unparalled patient care and advanced medical education is our focus on pushing the boundaries of research.

Our experts in the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery are at the forefront of discovery in reconstructive transplantation, tissue engineering and more. In a span of just five years, the department has protocols approved and in place for hand, face and penile transplants—an indication of just how quickly its transplant portfolio has grown, and how the entire field has evolved.
