Why choose Johns Hopkins?
The surgeons at Johns Hopkins take that power seriously. As a group, they bring together every kind of reconstructive surgery there is—facial reconstruction, tissue transfer, breast reconstruction, peripheral nerve repair, burn and scar repair, pediatric injuries and conditions, and much more.
Not only can they count on their combined years of expertise in reconstructive surgery, they can also turn to doctors in other disciplines whose work is as specialized as theirs is. As easily as walking down the hall, a hand surgeon can consult with a surgeon renowned for tissue transfer techniques or a pediatric surgeon can meet with a surgeon who specializes in nerve surgery to discuss a case.
