Plastic and reconstructive surgery is a personal decision that requires discussion and comprehensive information from experts who know our patients deserve the best. Our mission is to provide the highest quality of plastic and reconstructive surgery to patients and maintain the high standards in contemporary plastic and reconstructive surgery techniques and procedures. Our plastic surgeons are board certified in plastic surgery and members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

The achievements of the plastic and reconstructive surgery service are substantial in the care and treatment of diabetic feet with limb saving care, particularly, over the past 10 years, with a marked decrease of complications in the diabetic population. Outreach programs have been accomplished in diabetic foot care. The service works closely with the wound experts at the university to provide the highest standard of wound care in all types of patients.
