The mission of the Department of Plastic Surgery is to provide exceptional service through patient care, medical education, and scientific research that offers leadership in the practice of plastic surgery locally, nationally, and internationally.
To achieve this goal, we strive to provide collaborative, state-of-the-art clinical services to patients and conduct both teaching and research in the laboratory and patient care settings. We participate in and organize scientific conferences that further the excellence in the practice of plastic surgery and the treatment of the patient.
